Frequently Asked Questions


Our Editorial Policy

iEmily develops content with the guidance of physician experts in particular fields of adolescent medicine, with advisory groups of teen girls, and with experienced health and medical writers and editors. Our content is written and edited with close attention to accuracy, appropriateness, and accessibility to our audience. We have written guidelines for writers, editors, and medical reviewers.

Our Statement of Funding

iEmily is a private company created by Rina Spence, CEO, in 2000. Ms. Spence is a former junior high school teacher who went on to become a nationally recognized leader in health care administration. She has served as president and CEO of Emerson Hospital in Massachusetts. In 1994, she founded the widely acclaimed Spence Centers for Women's Health, a multi-site network of medical centers for women. She is a graduate of Boston University, where she received her BA and MEd degrees. She also holds an MPA from Harvard University.

The site currently has no external funding, but is in the process of researching responsible advertising and sponsorship options. We do not accept link or banner exchanges.

Our Policy Regarding Health Information

iEmily provides information to girls on health and wellness. We do not practice medicine, give advice, or offer conclusive evaluations of a particular girl's health. One of our services allows girls the ability to ask questions anonymously of a health professional. The questions and answers are posted publicly, and physicians are instructed in how to answer questions in a general and not personal way. We also post disclaimers at the point where a girl would post a question, just to remind her that the physician cannot give her a diagnosis because he or she has not examined her, and if she needs prompt medical attention she should see a health professional in person.

Our Policy Regarding Complaints

iEmily invites comments and questions from our visitors, whether positive or negative. We take feedback from visitors seriously and will answer questions and resolve problems in a reasonable period of time. Contact iemilyinfo@yahoo.com with questions and comments on the site.
