Nancy Snyderman, A Family Woman Leaves NBC; Where Is She Today?
In the fall of 2014, after finishing her assignment in Libera, physician-cum-journalist Nancy Snyderman returned to the United States, only to be coerced into seeking 21-day quarantine to lessen the risk of Ebola outbreak; there was a fear she might have contracted the virus after coming in contact with a freelance cameraman, who had the disease.
The ensuing days saw the St. Louis native go from a respected media personality with an excellent medical background to a national pariah after she got photographed outside a restaurant ordering a take-out soup, and thus, essentially violating the terms of the quarantine.
Amid controversy surrounding the quarantine violation, Nancy - who doesn't hesitate to bust the weight gain myth every now and again - decided to step down her role as NBC News Chief Medical Reporter.

Plenty of factors played a part in the doctor's decision to leave NBC following a glorious 9-years stay, but it would be dismissive to downplay the role of the quarantine violation in the process.

The Former ABC News' Medical Editor, however, waited few months before she handed in her resignation on 12 March 2015. At the time, she explained her reasons behind leaving the network by saying:-
“Covering the Ebola epidemic last fall in Liberia, and then becoming part of the story upon my return to the U.S., contributed to my decision... "
In response, NBC released a statement via a spokesperson thanking her for providing "expertise on countless medical health and medical topics" as well as wishing her all the best for her future endeavors.

In contrast to the friendly nature of the split, Nancy's relationship with her former employer seems to have dampened and over the years, made worse by her subsequent interviews.
The former Senior Vice President of Corporate Communication for Johnson & Johnson, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in August 2015, accused an unspecified NBC executive of not having her back during the now-infamous "Nancy must be drunk" debacle.
As per the interview, her decision to leave NBC coincided with a family tragedy: a month before, she had lost her father. But thankfully, Nancy had her husband of more than 25 years, Douglas Myers and their three children - Rachel, Charlie & an adopted daughter, Kate - to hold her back upon the trying times.

Since leaving the network, Nancy's career trajectory as a medical academic has seen unprecedented heights. Today, she is a consulting professor at Standford University, a position she has held since January of 2016.
