Distinguished Advisory Board

The physicians and scientists who have joined the AHRP Distinguished Advisory Board have done so as seasoned individual professionals who are committed to uphold medicine’s foundational, humanitarian moral principles.

These principles are enshrined in the Hippocratic Oath: “First, do no harm…prescribe a regimen for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment”; the Nuremberg Code: “The Voluntary informed consent of the human subject is absolutely essential”; and the UNESCO Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights (2005): “Any preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic medical intervention is only to be carried out with the prior, free and informed consent of the person concerned, based on adequate information.”

Their judgments and opinions are based on their experience as medical professionals and having examined both; the corporate-influenced medical literature and the independent scientific literature.

Their views do not necessarily reflect those of the institutions they are affiliated with.
