Nyaka Mwanza

Medical and Health Writer

Nyaka Mwanza

Nyaka Mwanza is a freelance writer for MyHealthTeam. She completed a Bachelor of Arts in communications and visual media from American University and undertook postbaccalaureate studies in health/behavioral communications and marketing at Johns Hopkins University. Nyaka is a Zambian-born, E.U. citizen who was raised in sub-Saharan Africa and Jacksonville, North Carolina. However, she has called Washington, D.C. home for most of her life. For much of her career, Nyaka has worked with large global health nonprofits focused on improving health outcomes for women and children. Nyaka believes words hold immense power, and her job is to meet the reader where they are, when they’re there.
