I'm Teagan Kuruna (formerly known as Teagan Keating), and I write, podcast, cook, and live in Philadelphia, PA. My day job involves writing and editing, tweeting, and blog managing for the Center for Health Care Strategies, a health policy think tank.

Previously, I was the National Cancer Institute Health Communications Fellow at The Cancer Genome Atlas, where I assisted in a website launch, revamped the social media strategy, and developed a writing style guide. I also created content including website copy, research briefs, and shareable media. Prior to my fellowship, I was a member of the team tasked with developing Philadelphia’s Health Improvement Plan for its Public Health Accreditation Board application.

I'm also a co-founder of the Philadelphia Podcast Festival and the Philadelphia Podcasting Society, and I host my own podcast.

I hold a master of public health from Drexel University, where I concentrated in health management and policy. I earned my bachelor’s degree in religion from the incomparable New College of Florida.
