Naseem Miller reports on health and science at the Orlando Sentinel. She wrote about the hospitals and their staff after the Pulse shooting tragedy in Orlando. Later, she co-founded the group Journalists Covering Trauma to create a safe space for journalists who cover traumatic events like mass casualties. Miller grew up in Iran during the war in the 1980s, finding refuge among the books in her father’s wall-to-wall library. Miller graduated with a bachelor’s degree in molecular and microbiology from the University of Central Florida. During her senior year, when yet another summer internship at a laboratory proved to her that she didn’t want to be a scientist, she began writing about science at the university’s independent newspaper. She later obtained her master’s degree in multimedia journalism from American University in Washington, D.C. Miller has written about health, science and medicine throughout her career, at consumer and trade publications.
