The Washington Post has hired Lauren Weber as an accountability reporter, focused on disinformation. Weber will join the Health and Science team on Jan. 3.

As per the Post:

Lauren will examine the forces promoting scientific and medical disinformation on subjects such as vaccines, drugs, nutritional supplements and health-care treatments, and will chronicle how academia, the health-care industry and government agencies fail to hold responsible those who profit from false claims. This is a newly created position that is part of The Post’s expanded commitment to health and science reporting.

Recently, she was a Midwest correspondent at Kaiser Health News, where she covered how America’s health system is working and not working for patients. She was a member of the KHN/AP Underfunded and Under Threat team, which won an AAAS Kavli Science Journalism gold award and a Headliner Award.

Previously, she was at HuffPost, where she was the creator and editor of The Morning Email, HuffPost’s weekday rundown of the news and then served as a public health policy reporter.

Weber graduated from Georgetown University.

You can congratulate Weber on Twitter.
