What is the Selling Sickness 2013 logo saying? We thought long and hard about how to communicate our goal for the spirit of this conference, not just our antipathy towards disease mongering. Pills or other typical Rx elements wouldn’t do it. Disease mongering is a puzzle and it will take all of us to grasp the full picture.
At Selling Sickness 2013 everything from the plenary sessions to panels to workshops to the Good News Exhibit Hall will facilitate interaction and collaboration among academic scholars, healthcare reformers, consumer/patient advocates and progressive health journalists – the stakeholders who will solve the puzzle of disease mongering. It will be a great opportunity to learn together and from each other.
We may represent separate pieces in the puzzle, but together we can work towards change.
