Joslyn M. Cassano

Content Producer & Health Communications Specialist

United States

As a trained journalist and multimedia producer, I bring curiosity, attention to detail, and a deadline-driven approach to the creation of content for television, print, and web platforms.

From recruitment videos to long-form feature stories, I know how to help organizations communicate to internal and external audiences.

I'm always on the lookout for mission-driven projects. I have produced more than 150 health news segments sponsored by the University of Miami Health System for air on WPLG (ABC-10) in South Florida, as well as longer documentary-style projects for prominent healthcare institutions.

I also created The Methods Section, a capsule public health news podcast available on iTunes, My areas of interest include healthcare, higher education, media, and government/non-profit sectors.

I have a Masters in Public Health from the University of California, Los Angeles, and a B.S. in journalism from Syracuse University's Newhouse School of Public Communications (Go Orange!), where I graduated as valedictorian and University Scholar in 1999.

For fun I write fiction, play tennis, and enjoy spending time between South Florida and Massachusetts with my husband and two daughters.
