Russ Gerber is a practitioner and teacher of Christian Science and he manages media and government relations for the Christian Science Church headquartered in Boston.
Russ enjoys opportunities to talk with journalists, editors, legislators, writers, producers and the public at large about the age-old capacity of spirituality to improve and restore health, explaining why and how that is happening today.
His media experience began with and grew out of a 30-year career in radio, ranging from on-air work, to programming, to managing and consulting.
When The Christian Science Monitor expanded into radio news programming, Russ was retained as a consultant then later hired full-time to help them adapt their print content to the broadcast medium. He eventually wrote for and edited the Church's weekly religious magazine, the Christian Science Sentinel, and launched a weekly radio program for the publication, heard on over 200 radios stations worldwide and on the web. In addition to contributing to Huffington Post, he is also a contributor to Psychology Today.
Today Russ and his wife, Jo Ann, call Boston their home, while enjoying opportunities to travel throughout the world.
