(Newser) – NBC's chief medical editor appears to have decided that breaking quarantine after possible exposure to Ebola to get takeout food is a mistake that her broadcasting career isn't going to recover from. Dr. Nancy Snyderman has resigned to take a teaching position, saying "becoming part of the story upon my return to the US contributed to my decision," according to NBC. Snyderman, whose voluntary isolation became mandatory after the October food run, returned to work in December but sources tell the New York Times that the incident soured her relationship with the network. Snyderman, who had been with NBC since 2006, says she is taking up a "faculty position at a major US medical school."
