Coming Sunday: Expanded health coverage

January 7, 2011 |  7:17 pm

In a memo to the staff, Times Editor Russ Stanton announced an expansion of health and wellness coverage, beginning with this Sunday's paper:

Our outstanding Health section is expanding its reach beginning this Sunday with two new pages in the A section devoted to Health & Wellness.

Readers will find additional coverage of nutrition, psychology, fitness and other issues. There also will be Q&As with experts on sports medicine, aging, children’s health and insurance, along with reports on the latest medical products and therapies. As part of this expanded effort, we are renaming the Monday section Health & Wellness.

Kudos to Health Editor Rosie Mestel and her team for broadening our coverage of a topic that is of high interest to our readers.
