Meredith Cohn came to The Sun in 2000 to cover commercial real estate after nearly a decade covering politics and business. Most of her recent time, however, has been dedicated to health and medicine, following all the advances in research at local institutions and the launching of the state’s online health insurance exchange. A runner since junior high and a particular eater for almost as long, she tries to keep up on health and fitness trends.
