Everyone is affected by disease or disease states at some point in their lives, whether it’s themselves or someone they know. Many rely on the internet to help clarify questions regarding healthcare and health information. It is important that information be accurate and reliable for those who read it. I am excited to be a part of a Medical Review Board for Verywell Health to help bring that information to the public.
