Generics Are Powerful Medicine

Community Catlayst (PAL’s parent organization) and the Alosa Foundation are offering grants as a part of a new campaign called Generics are Powerful Medicine.

The goal of Generics are Powerful Medicine is to dispel the unfounded myths surrounding generic drugs that cause patients to purchase more expensive brand name drugs rather than equally-effective and less costly alternatives. The campaign will create high-quality consumer education materials and will give grants to nonprofit organizations to undertake consumer education campaigns using those materials.

We need your help to spread the word about this exciting new program and the availability of these grants. Please inform your coworkers, colleagues, email lists and networks. Please post it on your website or blog. Please include it in upcoming newsletters or alerts to advocates and organizations. Help us get the word out! The Request for Proposals and other information can be found on the Generics are Powerful Medicine website,

Applications for grants must be postmarked by January 15, 2008.
