The Lead: Ryan Prior on Uncovering Stories About Health and Disability

Ryan Prior has been interested in telling stories about health, science and disability since high school. Now, he does that as a journalist — and has added documentary filmmaker and published author to his résumé. He also found time to consult with the federal government about long COVID and create a position at a think tank. Ryan joins The Lead to chat about telling health and disability stories and about his many different projects.

Ryan’s documentary “Forgotten Plague” is about chronic fatigue syndrome and can be found here. His book “The Long Haul” was published in 2022 and tells the story of millions of people living with long-term effects from COVID-19.

“The voices of the marginalized can be one of the places where there’s the greatest level of insight.”

Guest: Ryan Prior, journalist-in-residence at The Century Foundation (and University of Georgia alum).

Jacqueline GaNun is a senior majoring in journalism at the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia. She is also majoring in international affairs in the School of Public and International Affairs and minoring in French.
