Daniel GreenbergDaniel Greenberg, writer

Daniel joined APHA in 2012. When not cranking out public health news, he manages several of the Association’s social media channels, oversees partner outreach efforts and supports activities for APHA campaigns and events. He tirelessly defends 80s music of all genres, and contemplated a career in competitive eating before reevaluating his priorities.



Kimberly ShortKim Short, writer

Kim joined APHA in 2012. Her contributions to Public Health Newswire mostly address the latest happenings in public health research as she manages communications for APHA’s American Journal of Public Health. She completed her master’s in public communication at American University and gets jazzed about all things communications and media. When not reading or talking about the latest public health studies, Kim’s probably trying out yet another hobby to round out her pottery and crocheting classes.
