HealthNewsReview.org & Crowdsourcing – hearing patients' voices to improve health care news & other media messages

There is often a huge disconnect between media messengers and the public. Patients often don't receive the information they need to be informed health care consumers. We'll publish patients' critiques of health care news, ads, marketing, etc.
