Deborah Kotz, the Globe’s Daily Dose health blogger for the past four years, has taken a buy-out and that Daily Dose will be archived.
We’ll miss Kotz. While often stuck fielding the barrage of journal studies coming out of Boston medical centers, she always managed to avoid disease-of-the week reporting. Some stories just confuse readers. But writers who skip them often have to face editors asking “Why didn’t we have this?”
Still, it’s the kind of reporting that wins health writers like Kotz kudos.
The Globe no longer shares content with Boston.com, so that website produces its own health reports. Mostly aggregation, but a few stories. We’ll miss the science touch Kotz brought to that site before the Globe/Boston.com divorce. We wish them well as they find their way.They seem to have taken over the @bewellboston twitter feed.
