Recht of Bloomberg joins Kaiser Health News
Hannah Recht, a data journalist at Bloomberg News, has joined Kaiser Health News in the same role.
“I’m beyond excited to cover health care full time, now more than ever,” she wrote on Twitter.
At Bloomberg, her work focused heavily on health care, equality and public policy. These stories included a range of topics, methodology, data sources and visual forms.
Recht likes scraping obscure insurance filings and wrote an R package that accesses Census data. She previously worked at the Urban Institute as a researcher and data visualization developer.
She graduated from the University of Rochester with a degree in mathematics and statistics and a minor in epidemiology.
