Ryan Prior on uncovering stories about health and disability The Lead

    • News

Ryan Prior has been interested in telling stories about health, science and disability since high school. Now, he does that as a journalist — and has added documentary filmmaker and published author to his résumé. He also found time to consult with the federal government about long COVID and create a position at a think tank.
Today, we chat about telling health and disability stories and about his many different projects.
Ryan’s documentary “Forgotten Plague” is about chronic fatigue syndrome and can be found here. His book “The Long Haul” was published in 2022 and tells the story of millions of people living with long-term effects from COVID-19.
“The voices of the marginalized can be one of the places where there’s the greatest level of insight.”
Guest: Ryan Prior, journalist-in-residence at The Century Foundation (and University of Georgia alum).
Host: Jacqueline GaNun.
