Dear PharmedOut Friends,

PharmedOut has become a prominent voice *opposing the pharmaceutical
industry?s role in creating -- and maintaining--  the opioid addiction
epidemic*. We  have testified at a Senate committee about tactics used to
sell fentanyl, exposed "abuse-deterrent" opioids as a marketing scam, held
a continuing education event for 160  healthcare providers on alternatives
to opioids, and released two on-line continuing education modules on myths
about opioids and how to taper patients off of opioids.

But Pharma has pushed back, continuing to spread misinformation about
opioids in ways that undermine efforts to stop the opioid epidemic. *We
need your help to do more.* With your donation, we will expand our efforts
to educate health care providers about opioids and alternatives, *expose
misinformation campaigns *by opioid manufacturers, and oppose
private-public partnerships that benefit corporations at the expense of
patients.

*Donations can be made online at **http://pharmedout.org/donate.html
<http://pharmedout.org/donate.html>* or checks made out to Georgetown
University can be mailed to me at the address below.  Donations
received by December
1 will help us create an on-line version of Dr. Anna Lembke's great talk at
the PharmedOut conference on the opioid epidemic.


Thank you for your help!
