I’m Jo Waters and I’ve been writing about health, medicine and wellbeing in the UK national media for more than 25 years.
This blog is aimed at health and medicine news junkies like myself who love to read about all the latest developments in the medical world but also like to hear about how illnesses and diseases impact on human beings too. I regularly interview top doctors and scientists – but value the input of patients who can describe what their medical condition is like to live with just as much.
If you’re interested in reading my published articles you can find some online at jowaters.contently.com.
Other articles are available to read on the Daily Mail site here.
You can buy my latest book’ What’s Up With Your Gut?‘ (Hammersmith Books) co-written with gastroenterologist Professor Julian Walters from Imperial Healthcare in London, from Amazon, The Book Depository or Waterstones.
In June 2017 I was awarded the Journalist of the Year Award by the Health Food Manufacturers’ Association and am a former chair of the Guild of Health Writers (2011 to 2013).
In 2018 I won Case Study Writer of the Year in the Medical Journalists’ Association annual writing awards.
