THI has been providing leadership in the international response to COVID-19 by creating a Coronavirus Pandemic Working Group and a clearinghouse for vital COVID-19 information. Comprised of scientists, risk modelers, public health experts, doctors and other health professionals, THI’s rapid response team has been working non-stop on our nation’s most acute COVID-19 concerns. This team has consolidated the expertise of over a dozen public health and academic experts to provide leaders with evidence-based responses and models to prepare for boots-on-the-ground implementation.

Please consider making a donation to support our work so we can continue to strategize, mobilize, and analyze information to optimize both public and personal health.

Defending FACTS, Fighting Falsehoods

There seems to be a new diet competing with an old diet in every news cycle. But scientists are not confused, confounded, or at war. We take a moment to talk about an underappreciated topic: methodology.

If we factor in its contributions to all the major chronic diseases, the number is staggering.

This film examines the juxtaposition of "body shaming;" its effects on people; and obesity as the leading predictor of health outcomes in the modern age.
