TOTALLY HIP LINKS

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the FDA, as many as half of all Americans take at least one prescription drug each month, with more than 3 billion drugs prescribed annually. Unfortunately, many medications intended to help a patient can cause harmful and debilitating side effects. At DrugWatch.com, we aim to educate the public about prescription and over-the-counter medications, drug recalls, medication interactions, and current developments in the medical field.

 

Over 200,000 people die each year in the United States from negligence, medical malpractice and patient abandonment. Most people only have a basic understanding of what medical malpractice actually is and we would like to clear up the confusion.

The invisible disabilities advocate site pertains to all chronic illness/pain disorders which debilitate the sufferer. The purpose is educate loved ones about disabling diseases, which are not always visible from the outside. Thousands of patients are not only suffering from severe illness, but also from the lack of understanding from their loved ones, because their disabilities are "invisible."
