    About Brian W. Wu PhD

    Stories are powerful. They deliver knowledge through experience and emotion.

    I’m a writer, author, and advisor who believes in the power of stories and aim to deliver its multiple benefits throughout all my roles.

    I received my PhD in 2015 and my MD in 2017 from the Keck USC School of Medicine. I am currently a psychiatry resident at USC and believe in holistic care. I’ve founded Health Stories for Kids (formerly known as Storybook Illustrated Guides) because I want to help children understand the medical conditions they acquire, so that they can take good care of themselves and lead full lives.

    As a freelance writer/blogger, my style of writing is versatile and I’m always motivated to deliver exceptional content. I have more than five years of experience in topics related to health, technology, science, lifestyle, business and finance. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me via email or social media.

Once again thanks for all your help."

    "It was really helpful to have your input while writing. Thanks so much for you help throughout the process!"
    "I wanted to thank you again for all the great help that you have shared with me. I've had a great experience working with you."
    "The session was very helpful. You definitely highlighted what was clearly lacking in my responses, while also highlighting the good things. It allowed me to narrow in what I need to work on more, what points I should expound upon, and what ones I should omit from my responses. I feel as if I have a better idea of how to approach some of those questions now."
