Content Editorial Process

All stories receive statistical- 和 science-based review by the American Heart Association’s team of science 和 medicine advisors. All content is reviewed 和 published online by our AHA staff.

Because we are a science-based organization, review of all stories by science 和 medicine advisors is a critical step in all editorial production. Internal staff manages a database of review 和 assign each for review by at least one advisor.  If not approved, there is a feedback loop, which will ultimately require additional review.
