Team and Heart Based Collective Disclaimer

Aligned with the principle of co-creation and curiosity and the mission of this foundation, we seek earnest and well-considered perspectives on topics from all sides of an issue and through the lens of different disciplines. Our Heart Based Collective all support the foundation's central aim of better public education and dialogue: that does not mean they agree with or endorse every perspective in each article we write, nor does Heart Based Medicine necessarily agree with or endorse all the perspectives on issues each of them may have shared in other places.

Similarly, while everyone on the team contributes to the project and is aligned with the mission as a whole, that does not mean each piece represents the view of each team member, nor that the personal posts of team members elsewhere online represent the views of the project.

The views expressed in the articles are those of Heart Based Medicine as an organization, which assumes full responsibility for the content.
