A Word From Jimmy Lacy

Health care is a difficult and important topic to understand as it impacts ourselves and our loved ones in so many complicated ways. My job as a factchecker is to make sure readers are getting the most accurate and appropriate information possible in order to make the most fully informed decisions, in consultation with health professions, as they possibly can.
