Jane Greenhalgh is a senior producer and editor on NPR's Science Desk.
She produces the weekly Health segment on NPR's Morning Edition and writes and edits for NPR's health blog, "Shots." Greenhalgh also produces stories on science, health, and global health across NPR's many platforms.
Greenhalgh was part of the team of broadcast, digital, and multimedia journalists who produced the 2015 award-winning series " #15Girls," which examined the struggles teenage girls face throughout the developing world. Greenhalgh's story " Banished to the Shed" was one of NPR's most listened to and viewed stories of 2015.
She has twice won the National Academies of Science Communication award for her work on NPR's 2014 series " The human microbiome: guts and glory" and the 2009 series Climate Connections. She traveled extensively for this year-long, multi-platform project, examining how climate change is affecting people across the globe. From Timbuktu, where the desert nomads are giving up their way of life, to Peru, where potato farmers are moving their crops higher up the mountain, and to Bangladesh, where scientists are experimenting with drought and flood resistant rice, the stories Greenhalgh produced chronicled the impact of climate change.
Greenhalgh has traveled extensively covering health issues in developing countries, including cholera in Haiti, polio in Indonesia, tuberculosis in Kenya, AIDS in India, malaria in the Gambia, malnutrition in Bolivia, and menstrual health in Nepal.
