Hey Everyone,

My name is Rena. There's an upcoming LIVE webcast that I’ve been helping to promote for iGuard, the nations first and only Patient-Driven Drug Safety Monitoring Program that provides accurate and personalized drug safety information for patients and physicians alike.
The event is taking place on Thursday, October 4th at 2PM and will feature Dr. Judith Jones and Dr. Hugo Stephenson who will be on hand to further explain how simple it can now be for anyone and everyone to better assess the level of risks associated with the drugs they are taking/prescribing. You will also be able to ask any questions LIVE via email and have them answered by Dr. Jones and Dr. Stephenson during the webcast.

Recent studies by the Institute of Medicine and the US Food and Drug Administration reveal that the FDA does not focus enough attention on monitoring drugs once they are approved. Most drug approvals are based on clinical trials involving a few hundred or a few thousand patients, but many uncommon side effects don’t emerge until a drug is being used by millions of people. Through a quick online enrollment on the iGuard website (www.iguard.org), patients who regularly take medications can choose to receive patient-specific updates about the safety of the medications they are taking from an independent source. And participants in iGuard will receive these updates whenever new information is learned about their medicine, allowing them to make the most informed decisions about their healthcare.
