Arnold Mann







Mr. Mann has been writing about medicine for a national audience for the past 30 years. His cover stories in Time and USA Weekend magazines have earned him television and radio appearances and recognition as one of the leading medical journalists in the country.

His cover story on neurosurgeon Keith Black for Time Magazine’s 1997 Heroes of Medicine special issue became a book, with Mann as co-author with Dr. Black. Other Time features, most notably his environmental expose on Southwest Airlines’ San Antonio reservations center, plus his series of USA Weekend cover stories on the toxic mold threat in homes, schools, and apartment buildings, have made him a leading reporter in the environmental health field. He was keynote speaker at the national EPA "Healthy Indoor Environments 2000" conference in Dallas.

The four color magazine, published by Mann Media, grew from 64 pages in its first year to over 180 pages, with a 30-page travel section that featured an international array of high-end resort advertisers.

During these years, Mr. Mann continued to write for national publications. In 1992, he covered a midwinter airdrop to the National Science Foundation science stations at the South Pole for Air and Space Magazine. After ten years living in Bethesda, Maryland, Mr. Mann returned to Los Angeles, where he co-wrote "Brain Surgeon: A Doctor's Inspiring Encounters with Mortality and Miracles" with Dr. Black.
