Deborah Hirsch

Deborah DiSesa Hirsch is an award-winning health and technology writer who’s worked for newspapers, magazines and IBM in her 20-year career. Her vast experiences have helped her learn how to explain complex concepts in user-friendly language, whether it’s how to merge yoga and Pilates in ways that aren’t too painful, or how to treat low libido in men and women or analyze millions of pieces of data to lead to better diagnosis and treatment of disease.

In her spare time, she edits a newspaper for Newfield Elementary School students and has helped some discover a real love of words (while writing about pet guinea pigs having multiple babies, then dying, as guinea pigs do; valuing your own luck in life – after all, you could be living in Japan – and, her favorite, ghosts and goblins and witches all fighting over Twitter).

Her love of health and all things medical comes from a personal place. Surviving cancer twice, she appreciates more than most the advances in health care that give us life.
