For more than 20 years, I was the health reporter on News Center 6. I'm now a regular guest on the Morning Report. Before I became a health reporter, I was a radiation therapist/dosimetrist at Maine Medical Center. In 2002, I left the world of reporting to manage marketing and public relations for Mercy Hospital. In 2011, I decided to pursue a longtime dream of being a freelance writer and launched my award-winning blog Catching Health with Diane Atwood. Check out the blog and health events calendar at catchinghealth.com. Catching Health is also carried by Bangor Daily News. In addition, I write a Catching Health column for the magazines Maine Women and My Generation.
After working in the field of family planning for nearly 12 years, I am now expanding my nonprofit, health care communications world to include cancer support services.
