Jeanette Beebe is an independent journalist focused on health.


She covers a mash-up of medical evidence, tech, science, and health care policy.


Her work has appeared in The Daily Beast, Fast Company, Forbes, PBS' Next Avenue, MarketWatch, and Scientific American, where her story on the world's first pizza chef robot was called "creepier than lice and spiders" by The New York Post. She has filed radio and web stories for NPR member station WHYY for over three years, first as a Newsroom Intern. Her reporting has been featured on MSN and the Philadelphia Business Journal, and also by The Guardian and POLITICO.

As a data- and community-driven journalist who isn’t afraid of statistics, she often follows issues that impact under-served populations. In her reporting on health, tech, and the politics and policy that propel health care, she typically focuses on the experiences of three groups of people: women and girls, older people and their caregivers, and the LGBTQ community.

Jeanette is a fact checker for hire, and her work as a freelance field producer has been broadcast by the BBC, Gimlet, KALW, WBUR, and NPR/ProPublica’s “Lost Mothers” series, which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting. 

A Pushcart- and Best New Poets-nominated poet with a background in arts and cultural reporting, Jeanette also serves on staff at Nat. Brut as the magazine's Engagement Editor. 

She holds an A.B. in English with certificates in Creative Writing and Gender & Sexuality Studies from Princeton. 

Born and raised in Iowa, Jeanette has lived briefly in Chicago, New York, and Berlin (twice). Now, she's based in New Jersey — she's a long-time commuter, and she tries to travel light.
