Karen Ansel, MS, RDN

I'm a health writer and content marketing specialist. My niche is breaking down the science of health, wellness and medicine into engaging, easy-to-understand content for B2C and B2B clients. Topics I frequently cover include disease prevention, diet, nutrition, weight loss, diabetes, cancer, heart health, women's health, cooking, food safety, and recipe development. You'll find my work in Woman's Day, SELF, Shape, Women's Health, Prevention, Diabetes Forecast, Family Circle, Yoga Journal, EatingWell, Cooking Light, and O, The Oprah Magazine. I also write, blog and develop infographics, e-books, press materials and video scripts for corporate clients such as Harvard Health Publications, Abbott Nutrition, Kellogg's, Rite Aid, CVS, The American Diabetes Association, The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and Dignity Health. When I'm not writing you can find me talking health and wellness on Twitter.
