Emily Pisacreta

Multimedia Journalist

I'm a journalist with more than six years of experience as a writer and editor focused on health care and other social justice issues. As a recent graduate of Columbia Journalism School, I focused on investigative journalism and radio and podcast production.

Before journalism school, I worked as a digital editor for Planned Parenthood Federation of America, where I wrote hundreds of thousands of words about sexual and reproductive health, relationships, gender identity, and sexual orientation, and spawned a couple of viral memes. I've also contributed writing to Bedsider.orgRewire News, and Healthline.


My reporting interests include health care, labor, politics, history, and food. I grew up in Yonkers, NY but now I live down-river in the big city.
