I enjoy employing my expertise in the history of medicine and public health and in nutrition and food studies within a variety of non-academic contexts–e.g., radio and television, public history, traveling and online exhibits.

In the past I have served as a consultant for exhibits on the history of alcoholism in America (“LIVE Outside the Bottle: The Story of Alcoholism in America” sponsored by the pharmaceutical companies Alkermes and Cephalon) and on the history of psychoactive substances in American medicine (“Pick Your Poison–Intoxicating Pleasures and Medical Prescriptions” sponsored by the National Library of Medicine).

Lawyers, journalists, and documentary makers also have employed me as an outside expert or consultant. If you have a project related to medicine, public health, the life and health sciences, or nutrition that might be strengthened by an historical perspective, please feel free to contact me to discuss it.
