Recent work: stories for Slate, NPR, & Architectural Record

From the Dept. of Shameless Self-Promotion: It’s been a banner week in Freelanceville with a trifecta of firsts:

  • Slate — “Can Leprosy Be Eradicated?” about how the first rapid diagnostic test for leprosy is a game-changer.
  • NPR — A review of Bruce Feiler’s intriguing new book, The Secrets of Happy Families.
  • Architectural Record — “Tackling School Safety Through Design” about the architectural possibilities for schools post-Sandy Hook.

This seems like a good moment to put in a plug for my blog Secret Science Geek. I encourage you to check it out, subscribe, and “Like” the Secret Science Geek page on Facebook. Also, follow me on Twitter @laurafkaiser and @Secretscigeek. Thanks!
