Healthcare & Breaking News Reporter

Will, a native of Vicksburg, covers all things public health in Mississippi with a specific focus on the COVID-19 pandemic. He looks closely at public health trends and challenges across the state, with a keen eye toward reproductive justice and women and girls’ health.

The in-depth reporting from this newsroom keeps Mississippians informed and holds public officials accountable. That work is critical, and it’s something Mississippi Today does with distinction. It’s a privilege to be a part of that mission by reporting on the pandemic and our state’s healthcare system at a time when the general public is more engaged with public health than ever. My goal is to show readers how the complex, multi-layered issues of our public health systems affect them and their families.
