Cindy Uken - Health Journalism Fellow
I am currently covering medical issues for the Billings Gazette, Montana's largest newspaper, where I have been since September 2010.
I have worked at newspapers in South Dakota, Minnesota, California and Montana. Before coming to the Billings Gazette, I worked as the editorial page editor and columnist at The Desert Sun in Palm Springs.
While in Palm Springs, I was named one of Gannett's Top Ten Supervisors of the Year primarily for helping lead the effort to create a web site that run by youth, for youth.
In December 2011 I received a one-week fellowship to study at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
