Previously, Feibel was KQED's health editor in San Francisco and the health and science reporter at Houston Public Radio. She has covered abortion policy and politics, the Affordable Care Act, the medical risks of rodeo, the hippie roots of the country's first "free clinic" and the evolution of drug education in the age of legal weed.
