The pharmaceutical industry spends nearly three times as much on advertising to health care professionals as it does on advertising to consumers.

Responsible promotional efforts can give health care professionals valuable information about the latest drug treatments. But not all promotions are accurate and balanced.

Through its Bad Ads Program, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) asks health care professionals for help in making sure the promotion of prescription drugs is not false or misleading.

Learn how the Bad Ads Program helps protect the public during a 30-minute webinar.

An opportunity to ask questions will follow the presentation.

When:   Thursday, April 28, 12:00 p.m. (ET)

Length: 30 minutes

Where:  To join the webinar, see the instructions at www.fda.gov/AboutFDA/Transparency/Basics/ucm249817.htm
