Prevention Medical Review Board

prevention medical review board logo

The Prevention Medical Review Board, first founded in 2019, is made up of board-certified experts from a wide range of medical fields—from weight loss to heart health to dermatology—who review and ensure that our articles meet the highest standards of accuracy, integrity, and excellence. To provide you with the most credible and trustworthy content, our review board members check that the articles Prevention publishes cite relevant scientific studies and quotes appropriate experts, contains accurate and up-to-date information, and covers all major points that should be discussed relating to the topic. It’s another way Prevention aims to empower you to improve your physical, mental, and emotional well-being now and for years to come.

In addition to our medical review board members, hundreds of experts—medical doctors, registered dietitians, certified personal trainers, and more—are quoted throughout Prevention, representing diverse points of view and expertise.

Editorial Policies


The Prevention content production process includes interviews with qualified experts, as well as a thorough editing and fact-checking protocol prior to publishing. Published content is periodically fact-checked and reviewed to ensure the information provided is accurate and up to date.

Editorial Independence

Though Prevention is supported in part by advertising, our content is produced independently and held to rigorous standards for quality, accuracy, and integrity. In some cases, sponsors may be allowed input regarding broad concepts, but they hold no material influence over the end product. Content created in partnership with advertisers is clearly marked as such. Review Prevention’s Media Kit here.

Affiliate links

Prevention participates in various affiliate marketing programs, which means we may get paid commissions on editorially chosen products purchased through our links to retailer sites.
