About Us


Healthnews is an online site that educates people on myriad health topics and guides readers through informational chaos providing the most up-to-date, science-led, fact-based medical information in a language that is easy to understand.

We dive deep into health policy issues and offer independent journalism that does not shy away from controversial topics.


The editorial team works relentlessly to cover the latest news on health, health policy, and medical science. We interview experts from top universities and healthcare institutions and quote peer-reviewed studies in our articles. We carefully follow Healthnews Editorial Guidelines.


A vast network of contributors unites professional health writers, medical doctors (MDs, ODs, VMDs), nurses (RNs, MSNs, PHNs), and other experts (PharmDs, PhDs, MPHs) in various health-related fields. Our contributors tackle complicated topics using the knowledge gained from their clinical practice and the latest research.

We seek to promote gender, age, and race diversity in our contributors’ network to better respond to our readers’ needs and concerns.

Board of medical advisors

Accuracy is what we value the most in our content, so we constantly expand the Board of Medical Advisors. Consisting of PhDs and MDs, the Board thoroughly revises Healthnews articles.

Healthnews content team

The content team aims to coordinate and broaden the network of contributors and the Board of Medical Advisors so that Healthnews would cover an even wider range of topics. We are always looking for new ways to improve our content that will positively impact people’s well-being in the US and worldwide.
