Introducing the Institute for Science and Medicine

The gang that brought us the Science-Based Medicine blog among a list of 42 physicians from around the world, comes the Institute for Science and Medicine.

Here’s their mission statement:

The ISM is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to promoting high standards of science in all areas of medicine and public health.  We are a watchdog group of medical professionals who believe the best science available should be used to determine health policy and establish a standard of care that protects and promotes the public health.  We oppose legislation that seeks to erode the science-based standard of care and expose the public to potentially fraudulent, worthless, or harmful medical practices or products.

Two of its founders, Steven Novella and David Gorski, have blogged about it.
