About Critica

Led by Drs. Sara and Jack Gorman, Critica is a community committed to making rational decisions about health and security. In a culture dominated by polarizing politics and an abundance of unchecked misinformation, Critica exists to revolutionize the role of science in making rational health decisions.

Critica is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization chartered in the State of New York. We do not accept donations from entities that would present potential or actual conflicts of interests including, but not limited to, the following: firearm and ammunition manufacturers; tobacco companies; companies or organizations involved with oil, gas, coal, or any form of fossil fuel; pharmaceutical manufacturers; and media corporations or entities.  Our funding is from private donors with no such connections and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Our Mission: Grounded in our expertise in human emotion, behavior, health, sociology, and neuroscience, Critica's mission is to improve the public understanding of scientific consensus, counteract misstatements about health and science, and promote the use of scientific evidence in public policymaking.
Our Vision: Through collaborating with experts and relying on robust evidence and critical thinking, we believe that everyone everywhere has the ability to make truly informed and unbiased decisions about health and security.
