Dr Alice Lam writes clearly and compassionately about health and illness. She doesn’t shy away from complexity, leading lay readers deftly through the science and lived experience of complex problems.  

Her writing style is engaging, bright and warm, so she can hold readers through sometimes difficult topics. Her stance on health problems emphasises the empowered patient as central to good outcomes, ensuring that she generates hope amongst readers who themselves are facing health challenges.
