"Evidence Before Conclusions"

JATH Educational Consortium, LLC. is a group of professionals, patients, patient families, editors, writers,

researchers and those interested in providing medical facts to the general public and to professionals to use as seen fit.

None of the members of JATH received money for their work. Neither the group nor the individuals receive reimbursement from any pharmaceutical company, university grant program, or any other sources unless clearly stated at the beginning of the publication. This is not an opinion organization. We present facts. All facts are documented either in the publication itself or maintained on file for inquiries.

The medical science currently involving diabetes mellitus, opiate analgesics, and other topics may contain much incomplete or misleading data. It is our mission to look at this data and verify it or present new data for a balanced view of these large problems in our American culture.
