NBC News Chief Medical Editor Dr. Nancy Snyderman has resigned to take a medical teaching position, she announced Thursday.
Snyderman had apologized in December for violating her voluntary quarantine after she returned to the U.S. from covering the Ebola crisis in Africa. In a statement Thursday announcing she was stepping down, she said "becoming part of the story upon my return to the U.S. contributed to my decision."
A spokesperson for NBC News said: "Throughout her career with NBC News, Dr. Nancy Snyderman has provided her expertise on countless health and medical topics that are vitally important to our audience. She's been a valuable voice both on air and in our newsroom, and we wish her all the best."
