Healthcare writing for consumers

For a few years, I wrote for Memorial Healthcare System (now Memorial Hermann Health System). In addition to profiles featuring particular physicians or pieces highlighting services affiliated with the system, I wrote a number of general interest stories in the vein of the "I'm Joe's Heart" articles from vintage Reader's Digest. 

Here's an example of a consumer-focused piece about how the lymphatic system works, and another about how the brain works - each in simple language and about three pages.
