Emily Kumler Kaplan is an award-winning investigative journalist. As an ABC news staffer, newspaper reporter, columnist, and magazine writer, she has gone inside the minds of murderers, world leaders, celebrities, business innovators, and everyone in between. Emily’s fascination with how our personal narratives play a major role in our experiences makes her a captivating writer and speaker. She contributes to the The New York Times, The Boston Globe, Boston Magazine, Good Morning America, The New York Daily News, Cosmopolitan Magazine, The Daily Beast, and other media outlets. She also writes a weekly health column for Boston Magazine. As a women’s health expert, Emily can go deep on how women aren’t equally represented in clinical trials, how women experience different symptoms, contract different diseases and illnesses and require different diagnosis and treatments, yet are routinely cared for as if their bodies were male, because that is what most of our medical guidelines, research and practices are based on. She is a journalist who knows how to ask the tough questions, and with Empowered Health is becoming an activist for women everywhere. Her mission is to get women evidence-based information about their bodies so they can then have informed conversations with their doctors and make the right choices for their body and their lives. Emily is determined to help women lead longer, healthier, happier lives. She also owns three female wellness centers where she translates this information in person.
