Terry Murray has been a medical journalist for more than 35 years. She has held staff positions at Canadian Family Physician and the Medical Post, and been a consultant for the World Health Organization. She’s done freelance writing for medical and general interest publications around the world, and has established Murray’s Review of Medical Journalism, containing news from the world of medical journalism — insights into the thinking of medical reporters; news of the practitioners; language trends; and medical news but not from the usual suspects.
She also writes about non-medical subjects, including architectural history. Her specialty is reclaiming forgotten lives, including those of Toronto sculptor Merle Foster, and Murray’s own parents and their courageous contributions to the civil rights movement in the 1960s.
