We also have 15674 subscribers.

Mostly this website and email groups but we also have some meetings in person at many locations around the world.

We share information via our website, forums, email discussion lists, academic journal publications and informing the media. Members may join task groups.

As an advertising man, I can assure you that advertising which does not work does not continue to run. If experience did not show beyond doubt that the great majority of doctors are splendidly responsive to current [prescription drug] advertising, new techniques would be devised in short order. And if, indeed, candor, accuracy, scientific completeness, and a permanent ban on cartoons came to be essential for the successful promotion of [prescription] drugs, advertising would have no choice but to comply.
- Pierre R. Garai (advertising executive) 1963
