Judy Siegel-Itzkovich, the health and science editor at The Jerusalem Post, has been in that position since 1986, moving over from coverage of the Jewish world, immigration and absorption, the president of Israel, religious affairs and other "beats" since she joined the paper in February 1973. She has published over 29,000 news stories, features and columns as a Post journalist. A Master's degree graduate of Columbia University in New York who came on aliya immediately after completing her studies and within weeks joined the paper, she has a strong background in biology but received her BA and MA in political science because she could not bear to kill animals for lab experiments. She ravenously reads professional medical and science journals and has received numerous awards such as the Hadassah Women's Organization Women of Distinction Award in the Knesset. She is also Israel medical news correspondent of the British Medical Journal and a fluent English and Hebrew translator and editor in her specialized fields.
