Senior Medical Correspondent, CNN Health, Medical, and Wellness Unit
Elizabeth Cohen is an award-winning senior medical correspondent for CNN’s Health, Medical and Wellness unit, reporting breaking medical news and health consumer reporting on CNN and CNN.com. With CNN since 1991, Cohen’s coverage of US health crises include the COVID-19 pandemic, the anti-vaccination movement, and the deaths of children at the border. Her investigative pieces include a three-part series, “Escape from the Mayo Clinic,” and exposing the Florida Department of Health’s removal of 13,000 very sick children from state health plans to ones without specialized care. The report led lawmakers to ask for an investigation. The author of The Empowered Patient, Cohen won a Gracie award for her coverage of the 2014 Ebola outbreak in Liberia.
