Announcement from National News Editor Steven Ginsberg, Deputy National News Editor Lori Montgomery and Health, Science and Environment Editor Laura Helmuth:
We are delighted to announce that Carol Eisenberg will join the National desk as deputy editor for the Health/Science team. Carol comes to us from Politico Pro, where, as a deputy managing editor, she helped oversee coverage of health policy in the early days of the Trump administration, leading a team whose aggressive and scoopy reporting hastened the ouster of Tom Price as HHS secretary and Brenda Fitzgerald as CDC director. Carol also has overseen coverage of the Affordable Care Act, along with Republican efforts to repeal and unwind it.
Carol brings more than three decades of experience covering health care, politics, religion and homeland security. Before joining Politico, she was an editor at Kaiser Health News and CQ. She also spent nearly 20 years as a reporter at Newsday, where she was a member of two Pulitzer-winning teams, covering the TWA Flight 800 disaster in 1997 and a deadly subway derailment in 1992. A native of Flushing, New York, she studied history at Cornell University and spent a year as a Nieman Fellow at Harvard. She lives in D.C. with her husband, Matt. Her hobbies include Chinese martial arts, cooking and hosting house concerts.
Please welcome her to The Post when she joins us on Dec. 3.
