Laura Klivans

Community Health Reporter

I'm a community health reporter at KQED Public Radio in San Francisco. You can also hear my work on NPR, PRI, BBC, Here & Now, and Reply All. Before getting hooked on audio, I worked in education, leading groups of high school and college youth to places like Bangladesh, Peru and Guatemala. One of my favorite jobs was teaching on the Thai-Burmese border, where I worked with immigrants and refugees. I have a master’s in journalism from U.C. Berkeley, a master’s in education from Harvard, and an undergraduate degree from Northwestern. I teach audio at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism.
