Tracy shares news you can use from IU's health and wellness experts at the HEALTH & Vitality blog.

Tracy writes about health, science, and wellness expertise, as well as research by faculty in the School of HPER; the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences; The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction; the Department of Sociology; and other areas on the Bloomington campus. Her writing is geared toward reporters and a general audience, who she tries to reach with news releases, social media, blog posts, and internal IU media, such as InsideIU and campus websites. She also mans the @Vitality_IU Twitter feed.

Previously she has worked for a wide range of media outlets, including a police wire service in Chicago, a weekly newspaper in Lodi, Ohio, and a daily newspaper in Carbondale, Illinois. She holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Ohio State University.

She enjoys keeping active by running, swimming, cycling, hiking, canoeing and performing yoga—especially when she is joined by friends and family. She also enjoys reading (with or without her kids), cooking, and visiting new places.
