How You Can Help
PharmedOut was founded through the Attorney General Consumer and Prescriber Education grant program (AGCPGP) and is currently funded through individual donations. Please consider supporting us!
Credit card contributions can be made online. (Please be sure to choose "Other" under "Designation" and then write "PharmedOut " in the box under "Special Instructions.")
Checks should be made out to Georgetown University. Please designate PharmedOut in the memo section of your check or in accompanying correspondence and mail to the address at bottom of page. We also welcome gifts of securities, as well as bequests. All gifts are tax-deductible, and 100% of donations go to PharmedOut.
PharmedOut depends on professional volunteers, student interns, and pro-bono services. Medical and graduate students regularly do rotations and on-site research projects with us. If you are interested in volunteering or providing pro-bono services (especially legal, technical web skills, and fundraising expertise) please contact us.
Interns are a vital part of the PharmedOut team. Whether helping plan for a conference or working on their own research project, interns have made PharmedOut the research and advocacy group that it is today. If you are interested in working with us, please send an email to our project managerwith a resume and short paragraph on why you are interested in interning at PharmedOut.
