Nancy Snyderman Resigns from NBC News

Princeton Resident Dr. Nancy Snyderman has stepped down from her position as chief medical editor for NBC News. “Covering the Ebola epidemic last fall in Liberia, and then becoming part of the story upon my return to the U.S., contributed to my decision that now is the time to return to academic medicine,” she said in a statement indicating her return to academic medicine by taking up a faculty position at a major U.S. medical school. “I have loved my nine years at NBC and I am proud of the work my team has done. Very few people get the chance to combine two professions and I have appreciated the chance to inform the public about medical updates and the plight of so many in other countries. Every moment has been an honor,” she said.
