No one person is the definitive authority on diet and health, but in our unity there is the strength to provide evidence-based guidance everyone can trust.
Derby, CT (PRWEB) February 04, 2016
True Health Initiative (THI), a global coalition of leading experts and influencers in nutrition and health, today announced the creation of the THI Media Response Team (MRT). The primary mission of the MRT is to convey at every opportunity the evidence-based, worldwide consensus among leading experts and influencers about the fundamentals of healthy, sustainable eating, and other aspects of lifestyle medicine. The MRT, a group of over 30 national and international experts, is a resource for all media inquiries and provides timely information about published research regarding the core principles of healthy living that most effectively add years to lives, and life to years. The MRT is available to media outlets seeking responses, quotes, and input from the THI.
The ultimate mission of the THI is to eliminate as much as 80% of all lifestyle-related chronic disease through lifestyle as medicine. Having a united, global, and authoritative "voice" brings clarity to any confusion in the scientific literature and mass media and rises above potential misinformation and misinterpreted research.
“The True Health Initiative offers one authoritative voice on diet, lifestyle, and health – drawing from expertise as diverse as Paleo and vegan. No one person is the definitive authority on diet and health, but in our unity there is the strength to provide evidence-based guidance everyone can trust,” says True Health Initiative Founder David Katz, MD, MPH, founding director, Yale University Prevention Research Center, Griffin Hospital and president, American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM). “The True Health Initiative Media Response Team will disseminate and respond to media inquiries and questions in these areas.”
