WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- We want to wish 9News Anchor, Anita Brikman a happy and healthy birthday on Thursday.

Anita Brikman came to 9NEWS NOW from WPVI-TV, the ABC affiliate in Philadelphia, where she began in 1994 as their featured medical reporter, and shortly after joining the station also assumed various news anchor duties.

Among other assignments, she traveled to Indonesia following the disastrous tsunami to chronicle a medical relief mission undertaken by American physicians.
