Content identified by the HONcode team

The content below is a sample of the content identified at a specific date by the HONcode team that justifies the respect of the eight ethical principles.

Our founder, Mellanie True Hills, is now cured of atrial fibrillation. She created StopAfib.org as part of the American Foundation for Women's Health to share what she and other atrial fibrillation patients have learned and to provide you with information and answers to your questions.

Since we are not doctors or trained medical personnel, we cannot guarantee 100% medical accuracy. This site is meant to educate you so that you can be a proactive partner with your healthcare team in managing your atrial fibrillation together, but it does not replace that relationship.
