David Tuller, DrPh, is academic coordinator of University of California, Berkeley's joint masters program in public health and journalism. He was a reporter and editor for ten years at the San Francisco Chronicle, served as health editor at Salon.com and frequently writes about health for The New York Times.
He's an experienced public health activist with a background as an ACT UP/NY activist which included an arrest at the Wall Street demonstration in 1987.
David Tuller covered the PACE trial results for The New York Times as health editor in February 2011.  However he became concerned about the trial and wrote a further article regarding case definitions which resulted in an immediate response from the PACE trial authors which resulted him in investigating the trial and its authors further after contact with others in the patient community.  
"In the course of my reporting, I’d realized that the disease was both devastating and widely misunderstood. People were really, really sick—some were homebound for months and years at a stretch. Yet their condition had been saddled with one of the most condescending names ever given a major illness."
