Robin Erb

Robin Erb, who leads health coverage for Michigan Health Watch, believes it is our personal stories that keep us connected on common ground, whatever the break-neck fragmentation of a digital world. A long-time journalist, she has chronicled the shock and grief of our Michigan families in COVID’s wake, bone-aching exhaustion of our health care workers, deadly isolation in our nursing homes, and dangers of our mental health system, now left thread-bare.

Robin previously spent six years at the Detroit Free Press reporting on the fight against —and sometimes the triumph over— our most horrific diseases, the battle over the Affordable Care Act, and Michigan's expansion of Medicaid. She holds bachelor’s degrees in communications and political science from Miami University and a master’s in organizational leadership from Lourdes University (Toledo, Ohio).
