Sammy Mack

Sammy Mack (@sammymack) covers health care policy for WLRN News.

She’s passionate about the human impact of policies and conditions affecting public health and access. Mack has a master’s degree in public health. She's been a print journalist, web editor and video producer—but her favorite kind of storytelling is with sound. She was part of the team that produced Remembering Andrew, which won a Third Coast bronze award.
