How can we get the media involved in educating the public?

Dr. Abramson,

Thank you for your excellent work in "Overdosed America". I wish more Americans would take the time and interest in learning why our health care system is broken and how it is affecting our society.

How can we get the media involved in educating the public about what is really going on with the drug companies, FDA, etc.?

Ellen Small

Ellen, The most important thing to do is contact your local media and let them know that you are interested in hearing the high cost and low quality of our health care, as well as the role that the drug companies are playing in distracting our attention and resources from the most important ways to protect and preserve our health. Remember that the $4.6 billion spent each year on advertising to the pubic by the drug industry creates some incentive for the media to be supportive of the drug industry. That's why it's so important to make your opinions known.

All the best,

John Abramson MD
