SILVER SPRING, Md. The Food and Drug Administration is teaming up with an online drug information Web site to distribute its consumer health information, the agency said Wednesday.
The FDA announced a collaboration with Drugs.com that will allow the FDA to provide Consumer Update articles, videos and slideshows through the site while also providing access to FDA information on the site’s mobile phone platform.
“The FDA’s partnership with Drugs.com means that reliable, useful and timely health information will be available to an even wider audience,” FDA associate commissioner for external affairs Beth Martino said. “Partnerships like this are an important part of the FDA’s effort to ensure the public has easy access to reliable, useful information that can help people protect and improve their health.”
