WSJ names new deputy for health and science team
Stefanie Ilgenfritz, the bureau chief of the health and science team at The Wall Street Journal, sent out the following announcement to the staff on Monday:
Please welcome Jeanne Whalen back to this side of the pond, where she is joining the NY Health & Science group as a deputy along with Ron Winslow.
Jeanne joined the Journal in Moscow in 1999, where she covered everything from oil to oligarchs to Moscow’s secret drag-racing society. Since 2004 she has been a key part of the London bureau, covering the European pharmaceutical industry and the occasional royal wedding. Among her recent hits are stories on the measles outbreaks among the children of vaccine deniers in Wales, hepatitis C treatment in Scottish drug users, and the growing global trade in fake drugs for malaria and cancer.
She is a graduate of Cornell University and grew up in Chicago.
