It's frustrating to read about parents who would decline a routine, preventive injection that can prevent a potentially fatal condition in their newborn -- yet that's exactly what's happening.

Story
Tagline
A health/science reporter, blogger, photographer and educator
Introduction

Tara wears a variety of hats as a writer,journalist, photographer and educator. She is an adjunct journalism professor at Bradley University (Peoria, Illinois), evidence-based mommy blogger, SAT/ACT/GRE test prep instructor, aspiring children's book writer, avid scuba diver, former triathlete, sometimes yogi, former ballroom dancer and eternally curious observer of the human condition and the natural world. 

She has been a photographer 17+ years and a journalist 20+ years, specializing the past four on health and science reporting. She also has expertise in writing for children and curriculum development, drawing on her years as a Texas high school teacher and her graduate work in reading comprehension instruction. Since earning her Master’s in Photojournalism at the University of Texas at Austin (Hook ‘Em!), her work has especially included more multimedia projects.

Tara is a full-time reporter and senior editor at dailyRx News, health editor at Double X Science, health reporter for Chicago Bureau online and contributor to Slate.com, Scientific American, Muse Magazine, IMNG Media and Scuba Diving Magazine, among other publications. She blogs about health, science and parenting news at Red Wine & Apple Sauce, which has led to a recent book deal with Penguin Random House on evidence-based parenting.

Her writing specialties cover vaccines, parenting, prenatal and children’s health, marine biology, environmental science, mental health, education and standardized testing preparation.

Tara was once a world traveler — backpacking, hiking, train-hopping and motorbiking through more than 40 countries on six continents while eating strange insects, climbing ancient ruins and swimming with sharks — but that was before she became a mom. Now she just takes her son (and sometimes her husband) with her on her journeys.
