Medical Advisors - Emmi


Medical Advisory Board

Emmi is committed to engaging patients with evidence-based medical information. To create our award-winning programs, our team of medical writers and illustrators collaborate with a great variety of medical experts. These experts include surgeons, nurses, dieticians, pharmacists, primary care physicians, therapists and more.

Become a Medical Advisor

We are always seeking medical advisors to help us build new Emmi programs, update current Emmi programs and conduct annual medical reviews of our program library. Like us, our advisors are committed to improving the patient experience through communication and medical excellence.
