The Real Deal on Prescription Drugs, and Medical Treatments

The latest issue of YORKU magazine recommends Media Doctor a website devoted to getting the real information out there about medical treatments which the media is unable to provide. The site covers drugs and treatments and reviews and assesses stories in the media. There are 13 reviewers that are part of the MD project, five of them are Canadian physicians. The Media Doctor site is funded by Industry Canada.

  1. Hi Krista,

    Thank you for the link to Media Doctor Canada. One of their goals is to alert family physicians about current media articles that patients may approach them about. But I could see how it would be good resource for someone providing consumer health information services as well. I’ll be sharing this link with my fellow students in the Health Resources class (FIS 2135)- a great course by the way, with the interests you are sharing on this blog, I am sure you would enjoy it.

    I am totally impressed at how you have taken up the challenge of blogging, and also by the diversity of your interests!

    Barbara S.
