    Schools to Start Depression Screenings = Big $$$ for Big Pharma!

    in Politics

    The largest school district in Minnesota is considering screening students for depression and anxiety.  

    This most certainly means that countless more children and teens will be the subject of a parent teacher conference where the district's psychiatrist urges the prescription of an ADHD (or ADD) medication to improve concentration, focus or happiness of the student in question.

    While the screenings are supposedly aimed at preventing more student suicides, the establishment fails to inform parents that many child and teen suicides are most likely the result of the same anti-anxiety and anti-depression medications that will be pushed following the new screenings.

    WND reported that the screenings are the result of Obama's executive action on gun control following Sandy Hook.  Many opponents argue that the goal is to document "mental illness" with  as many students as possible, so to later be used as a flag to prevent gun ownership.  Many call it a back door attack on the second amendment.

    Even if you aren't concerned with the second amendment, you should be concerned about these drugs being forced upon children and teens across America.

    Pharma Brand Ads Within Mobile Apps

    in Business

    Myrbetriq®'s Advertising Partnership with RunPee App

    Pharmaguy interviews Walt Johnston, Vice President of US Marketing and New Product Planning, and Emily Sitrin Mason, Consumer Marketing Director - Urology Franchise, at Astellas (see Bios). We discuss a new partnership with Astellas Pharma US and the RunPee mobile app as part of the company's marketing campaign for Myrbetriq® (mirabegron) featuring an animated bladder character. 

    The RunPee app is a movie-viewing app that tells you the best time to "run and pee" without missing the best scenes. While the ultimate goal is to encourage individuals to speak with a health care professional about overactive bladder (OAB), Astellas is encouraging those who experience symptoms of OAB to enjoy the movies this summer and download the app to determine the best time to use the restroom during movies if needed. 

    Questions/Topics of Discussion

    Give us a little background about this partnership. Why did Astellas decide to partner with RunPee?
    Describe how the app works
    Are branded Myrbetriq® ads served up within the app? Describe how that is done.
    What is the target audience for Myrbetriq® and how does the app help you reach this audience?
    What are are the KPIs for this campaign? Has it been successful so far? What data can you share with us?
    What have you learned from this partnership?

    Bringing Down Big Pharma

    in Education

    Jeff Hays is a serial entrepreneur and filmmaker with a long colorful history of visionary projects. Following his passion for sharing truth, and exposing the controversy that all too often surrounds it, Jeff produced "Doctored" in 2012. Doctored, reveals the unseen tactics of the medical establishment and exposes deception and criminality at the highest levels of the American Medical Association (AMA) and finally shares the stories of victims left in it's wake. Jeff is currently producing a follow up film "Bought", taking a deep dive into the business of Big Pharma, the controversies with vaccines and the truth about GMOs in America's food supply. The film has already developed the support of some of the world's most acclaimed experts in research, medicine,  and natural health. Based upon the film's trailer, it has been dubbed controversial by media outlets even though it focuses on educating the public and arming people globally with the truth and facts about Big Pharma, vaccines and the food supply. Jeff believes that each person has a right to the truth and be empowered by the facts in order to make educated decisions about their own health, food and medicine.
