Leigh R

In the vein of Anton Chekhov, Leigh E. Rich has followed two passions in life: literature and medicine.

A longtime “culture critic,” she is an award-winning writer of editorials, news and feature stories, and reviews, and she has experience as a staff and free-lance journalist for multiple publications in the United States.

She also holds a doctorate in Health and Behavioral Sciences and a master’s degree in Cultural and Medical Anthropology and has worked or studied in Australia, Denmark, Italy, Russia, and Switzerland.

A professor of Health Administration, she teaches courses in bioethics, health law and policy, and social theory.

Catch her on Fridays at 11 a.m. (with P. T. Bridgeport) for “Beyond the Liner Notes,” 12:05 p.m. for “Listening to Literature,” and 2 p.m. for “The Common Good” (an exploration of health, law, and ethics).
