Dylan Scott first picked up a notepad and pen as a junior in high school to write for his hometown newspaper. In the 10 years that have followed, he has reported on everything from high school sports to the most consequential Supreme Court cases in a generation.
He is currently a Washington correspondent for STAT, Boston Globe Media’s new publication covering health and medicine, focusing on Vice President Joe Biden’s cancer “moonshot” and on how those issues are factoring into the 2016 presidential campaign.
He previously reported for National Journal, Talking Points Memo and Governing magazine. Since coming to Washington, D.C., in 2011, he has covered the opening of diplomatic relations with Cuba, broken stories on Social Security and welfare reform on Capitol Hill and documented the nascent Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. The centerpiece of his work has been coverage of the Affordable Care Act and, since joining STAT, the emerging national debate over prescription drugs.
He was a primary contributor to the Governing Generations series, on aging in America, which won the 2013 American Society of Business Publication Editors award for Best Feature Series.
Over the last five years, his reporting has been referenced by the top news organizations in the United States: the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Huffington Post, Slate, ProPublica, The New Republic, MSNBC, Salon, The Wire, Esquire, The Dish, Gawker and SCOTUSblog.
Dylan’s first job out of college took him to the award-winning Las Vegas Sun, where he covered the fallout of the Great Recession in one of the country’s hardest-hit metropolitan areas.
Before graduating from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University in 2010, he was awarded first place by the Associated Press Society of Ohio for Best Investigative Reporting for a series of stories exposing questionable accounting practices and budget decisions by the university’s administration.
