The Healthy at Reader’s Digest: About Us

Health is important … and wellness? It’s everything. At The Healthy, we aim to make both more accessible and inspiring for you.

From the publishers of Reader’s Digest—whose 100 years have made the brand a trusted authority at uncovering developments in health and wellness—The Healthy provides real, science-backed answers for your most important health questions and problems.

Our goal is to provide science-backed, expert-approved answers for pressing health topics that resonate in your life. With sound insights around current trends and wisdom and motivation for practicing good nutrition, fitness, illness prevention, love and close relationships, weight loss for better health, longevity, beauty, and so much more, our committed editorial team works to empower you to make practical improvements in your life and help you live just a little bit better each day.

So every day our team—a network of experienced reporters and writers, some of whom themselves are certified specialists—connects with clinical experts across the country. These include scientists, doctors, registered dietitians, licensed psychologists, and certified trainers, just to name a few, who share their honest, informed takes on your health questions. Our team relies on recent scientific studies published in peer-reviewed medical journals; breaking updates directly from accredited organizations like the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; first-person stories from individuals who have experienced a specific health concern that’s generating conversations in our culture; and medical experts with years of experience—including our own Medical Review Board.

The time we live in reminds us that when it comes to your health, there’s always something more to learn. The Healthy‘s goal is to equip you with up-to-the-minute clarity, and to enhance your authority in the ways you take good care of yourself and the people you love.

Our Mission

At The Healthy, we understand that people are overwhelmed by the volume of available health and wellness advice, which is often conflicting or perceived as biased. We strive to streamline and curate a content collection that helps you locate not only information but experiences that resonate with your particular concern or condition. To give you a deeper understanding of where that information comes from and the evidence that supports it.

Health decisions can be hard. The Healthy makes them easier.

When creating health content it’s crucial to use authoritative experts and to back up claims with references to medical studies published in peer-reviewed journals and science-based facts. The Healthy articles are written by staff editors, qualified writers, and subject-matter contributors. Content with serious medical claims is vetted by a team of consulting doctors and medical professionals that make up our Medical Review Board.
