Trine Tsouderos is a journalist who formerly wrote for the Chicago Tribune, beginning in 2003, prior to which she wrote for People, the Tennessean, and the Wilson Daily Times (where she began her career as a journalist in 1995).[1] Since 2013, Tsouderos has been a director at PwC's Health Research Institute,[2] a healthcare think tank.


Tsouderos is known for authoring articles about controversial autism therapies such as BDTH2,[3] chelation therapy and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.[4] She has also written an article about Anjum Usman, a doctor in Naperville, Illinois who critics say prescribes supplements and treatments for autistic children which were based in part on inappropriate lab testing.[5] In 2012 she was appointed healthcare media director at Golin Harris International.[6] Another of her articles focused on the suspension of Mark Geier's medical license,[7] as well as, more generally, his use of Lupron to treat autistic children.[8] Other topics of her reporting include the potential role of XMRV in the etiology of chronic fatigue syndrome,[9] as well as the efficacy of anti-aging creams.[10]
