Media has always been of great interest to Ryan. It all started as a narrator for Sunday services at Munsey Memorial United Methodist Church in Johnson City, TN at the ripe old age of 14. Once in college, he began work with WETS-FM 89.5 NPR for East Tennessee State University. While with WETS, he participated in news editing, board operations, announcing, and program production. Before starting medical school, Ryan spent a summer with WJHL-TV in Johnson City, TN as a production assistant.

He also volunteered for board operations and reading for Central Kentucky Radio Eye, a radio service for the blind in Lexington, which he still continues today. While a resident at the University of Kentucky, Ryan had the opportunity to spend a month as an Intern with the ABC News Medical Unit in Boston, MA, writing stories for ABCnews.com, researching stories for other ABC outlets, and doing some on-air work for ABCNewsNow. Ryan continues to contribute written and video stories for ABC. In December of 2008, Ryan was named the "Doc On-Call" for WTVQ-36 in Lexington, an ABC affiliate. This position involved on-air interviews and segments with WTVQ Health Reporter Kristi Runyon, dealing with common emergency topics and viewer questions.

This series will be continuously updated with new topics dealing with health stories that effect people in their every day lives.
