Biography

For a recent birthday, Jane Brody, the New York Times Personal Health Columnist, received a T-shirt that proclaimed "Still Perfect - After All These Years." Once she stopped laughing, she realized it should have said, "Still Trying - After All These Years"...still trying to be good to her body, to fuel it right and move it regularly so that it will continue to be good to her. However, while her regular menu focuses on vegetables, fruits, grains, potatoes, beans and peas fleshed out with low-fat dairy products, fish and shellfish, lean meats and poultry, she is no fanatic. Moderation and variety, not deprivation and denial, are Jane Brody's watchwords. To keep her body from rusting out, she insists on daily physical activity, alternating between walking, cycling, swimming, ice-skating, singles tennis, hiking, gardening and cross-country skiing. The result is a woman who is more robust, energetic, youthful, and trim in her 60's than she was at 16.

Jane Brody received her B.S. degree in Biochemistry from the New York State College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Cornell University in 1962 and a master's degree in Science Writing from the University of Wisconsin School of Journalism the following year. In 1965, after two years as a general-assignment reporter for the Minneapolis Tribune, she joined the New York Times as a full-time specialist in medicine and biology. In 1976 she became the TimesPersonal Health columnist. Her widely read and quoted column appears every Tuesday in the Times Science Times section and in more than 100 other newspapers around the country. In addition, Jane Brody's articles on other aspects of science and medicine appear frequently in Science Times.

Ms. Brody has also written scores of magazine articles and lectures frequently on health and nutrition to audiences both lay and professional. She has appeared on hundreds of radio and television shows throughout the country and has received numerous prestigious awards for journalistic excellence. In 1987, Jane Brody was awarded an honorary doctorate from Princeton University. Ms. Brody also has honorary doctorates from Hamline University in St. Paul, the State University of New York Health Sciences University and the University of Minnesota School of Public Health.

Jane Brody has written many books including the best sellers Jane Brody's Nutrition Book and Jane Brody's Good Food Book.

Jane Brody was born on May 19, 1941, in Brooklyn, New York, where she presently resides with her husband Richard Engquist, a lyricist for stage musicals. Their twin sons, Erik and Lorin, now both married, share her enthusiasm for wholesome food and fitness.
