iEmily Statement of Authorship

All content on iEmily.com is originally written. The vast majority of the content was written in 2000 when the website was first published.

The current editor and author is Margaret Jack, a History and Science concentrator at Harvard College in the class of 2009. She is a pre-medical student who has had previous research experiences in public health and the combination of health education and technology.
