Health News Florida Intern

May Zayan is an intern for Health News Florida, where she scours the web to find the most important and fascinating stories happening in the world of health and health care, and helps deliver those stories to the HNF audience through the daily eAlert newsletter.

Born in Cairo, Egypt, May speaks fluent Arabic, and though she considers Tampa her true hometown, she has called several other places home, including Miami, New York and Los Angeles. May has a B.A. in design and a M.A. in architecture, both from the University of Florida.

Meshing her design background with her passion for multimedia and investigative journalism, May is currently pursuing an M.A. in Journalism and Media Studies at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. May's work has been featured on PBS's Washington Week with Gwen Ifill, as well as on her blog, where she covers social issue cross-overs between the West and Middle East.

Deal-of-the-day sites like Groupon, where subscribers can find limited-time discounts for all sorts of  services, offer more these days than simple pampering on the cheap. They’re adding health care to the list.

The Florida Board of Chiropractic Medicine has ruled that it's not a violation of any laws or rules to advertise through Groupon or similar arrangements. Paul Lambert, general counsel for the Florida Chiropractic Association, said the feedback so far is positive.
