Reporting: Fallik left full-time reporting in 2007. She now freelances medical stories for The Wall Street Journal and Neurology Today.
Academia: In addition to coordinating the journalism internship program at UD, Fallik teaches beginning and advanced reporting, medical writing, social media sourcing and critical writing. In 2012 she joined the board of directors for the DART Society, which works with journalists who cover trauma and violence.
Blogging: Despite her years of investigative reporting on subjects that matter, Fallik has a pop culture problem. After correctly identifying a Project Runway designer’s dress on a Wall Street Journal editor, they hired her to blog a variety of programs including Gossip Girl, Vampire Diaries and Project Runway. She interviewed Tim Gunn, reviewed U2 and forced herself to taste many samples at the Specialty Food Show in New York City.
