After a period of dormancy, the site was revived in 2008, and some content was updated under physician supervision.
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.
