Medical Review
WebMD Health Services maintains the highest clinical standards of the articles, videos, activities, and tips on our site. That's why our health and wellness content is reviewed by a physician before it appears on the site. Our medical reviewers are experienced in the fields of condition management, behavior change, weight management, and tobacco cessation, as well as health analytics and behavior economics. Our physician reviewers and our Medical Advisory Board also help to drive product innovations based on consumer needs, scientific innovations, and industry trends.
