Editorial Policy and Standards
Our Content Integrity Promise
At The Deavita, we take great pride in the quality of our content. Our writers create original, accurate, engaging content that is free of ethical concerns or conflicts.
Our content is produced by humans, for humans. Each article features a byline that includes the name, a brief description, and a link to more information for each person who contributed to that piece. The date indicates when the piece was most recently updated with new information. Some articles also have a tagline at the end to provide additional information on research or authorship. It is against our guidelines to publish automatically generated content using AI (artificial intelligence) writing tools such as ChatGPT.
Visual Assets Integrity
Original illustrations, graphics, images, and videos are created by internal teams, who collaborate with experts in their fields to produce assets that represent diverse voices, perspectives, and context. Periodic review by editors as well as by Medical, Financial, Anti-Bias or other Review Board members as appropriate, ensure the quality, accuracy and integrity of these assets. Photos and videos are not edited in any way that may cause them to be false or misleading.
Fact Checker Team
The Deavita’s team of experienced fact checkers provides a critical layer of review to ensure content integrity. This group of professionals is selected and vetted for journalistic and subject matter expertise. They are tasked with researching all statements of fact to ensure that news and information presented in our articles is accurate and comprehensive and statistics are properly sourced and up to date. Articles that have been officially fact checked will display a “fact check” badge, as well as the name of the fact checker at the top of the page near the author.
Fact Check Badge
If you have noticed an issue you would like to bring to our attention, please let us know by emailing office (at) deavita.com
Accuracy and Corrections
Our editorial team is committed to producing high quality, factual content. If there is an error in a story, we will correct the error as quickly as possible. All corrections will be clearly labeled as such, and will include what was changed and when. When an article is factually correct, but the language is not as clear or detailed as necessary, the story may be updated without an editor’s note.
News articles often cover a distinct event in time, so they are not routinely updated. Our rich library of “evergreen” service content is routinely updated, reviewed by our professional review boards, and fact-checked to ensure the information is accurate, complete, relevant, and up-to-date. Each article is date-stamped to reflect when they were last updated.
If you would like to report an error, you can do so by emailing office (at) deavita.com
Our writers and editors adhere to strict standards for article sourcing. We rely on current and reputable primary sources, such as expert interviews, government organizations, and professional and academic institutions. All data points, facts, and claims are backed up by at least one reputable source.
We strongly discourage the use of anonymous or unnamed sourcing, as this can erode transparency and reader trust. In the rare instance where an unnamed source is used, we will disclose to readers the reason behind the anonymity and provide necessary context.
A cornerstone of our reporting and sourcing is to consider often overlooked perspectives from BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and women. Our content strives to serve all communities.
Independence and Impartiality
Separation Between Advertising and Editorial
The Deavita is committed to independent, impartial, fair journalism. Our editorial content is not influenced by our advertisers. Every staff member and contributor is held accountable to a high standard of honesty and transparency.
We maintain a strict separation between advertising and editorial content. Our “Sponsored Content” is labeled to make clear that such content is provided by or on behalf of an advertiser or sponsor.
Product and Service Reviews

All of our writers and editors are responsible for disclosing any potential conflicts of interest – any relationship, financial, or personal, with any source or resource that may compromise their ability to provide fair and impartial information.

We are transparent and disclose when any valuable products or services are provided to our editorial teams. Our editorial staff and editorial contributors must not solicit gifts or services for personal purposes.
