The goal of HECG is to provide communities with in-depth health information created and reviewed by experts on topics such as obesity, vaccinations, chronic health conditions, mental health concerns and suicide prevention. Our team of expert contributors includes mental health experts, primary care doctors and nurses, nutritionists, psychologists, patient advocates, public health experts and more.
In addition to the expertise provided by our contributors, we rely on primary sources and data from public health organizations and institutions, including:

Part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, NIH is a government-sponsored medical research agency that provides public health research and information.
This non-profit provides education, advocacy and support for the more than 93 million people in the U.S. affected by obesity.
The World Health Organization is an agency of the United Nations focused on international health. Their goal is to build a better, healthier future for people all over the world.
