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.

I am Lisa Emrich, musician by training, professional patient by chronic illness. I have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis, both autoimmune inflammatory diseases. Neither disease has a cure so I do my best to live well and deal with the potentially debilitating effects as they arise.
