Patient Assistance: Access to Drugs for the Uninsured, and a Dose of EPA, Too


I’m pleased to announce a new relationship — PatientAssistance.com and Every Patient’s Advocate….

The courtship didn’t last long before the commitment.  PatientAssistance.com is a non-profit organization which helps those who are uninsured gain access to the pharmaceutical drugs they need.  Check it out — a very necessary helping hand for those who just can’t afford expensive drugs.

And right there on the homepage, I’m proud to say, will give you access to the first article I’ve written, Why Do We See Prescription Drug Ads on TV?

I’m so happy to be included in the services offered by this organization.  If you have suggestions about information you’d like to see, please send me an email at:  blog (at) epadvocate.com

Thank a Veteran by Getting Your Flu Shot

My husband is a veteran. He served 20+ years in the Air Force, is now retired and has moved on to another career all together. But his service to our country is very much a part of his life, meaning then, both our lives.

I am so very proud of the man my husband became from that service! He lived in five countries across the globe, and saw parts of life on this planet that most of us will never experience or even know about. His understanding of people and cultures, no matter where or how they live, is broad and respectful. He retains a handful of friendships with his fellow service members even these many years later.

So how do you show the veteran you love, just how much you love him? Why not make sure he or she stays as healthy as possible?

Make an appointment for you, and the veteran you love, to get a flu shot!

Even if you don’t know a veteran, even if you think you aren’t at risk of getting the flu yourself, understanding the concept of “herd immunity” will help you understand why your flu shot is so vitally important.

Learn more about herd immunity – and why Veteran’s Day is a great time to make plans for your flu vaccination.

You may save a life, whether it belongs to you or a veteran or someone else you care about.
