I'm Lauren, a Toronto-based journalist with CBC News.
I've spent the last decade as a writer and reporter, mainly focused on health and medicine. Most recently I've been covering the COVID-19 pandemic — including stories on Canada's vaccine rollout, emerging research, and the toll on Ontario's healthcare system. Previously, I was the municipal affairs reporter for CBC Toronto and a lifestyle reporter focusing on health and wellness for the Toronto Star.
I've also written health and lifestyle stories for a variety of publications, including the National Post, Chatelaine, Best Health, ParentsCanada, and Canadian Family.
