Blogs I Like: Pharmamotion

A physician-blogger from Argentina recently wrote to ask me to take a look at his site, called Pharmamotion: Pharmacology & Therapeutics Resources.
The purpose of his site is described as: “… to gather educational resources targeted to health professionals that are freely available on the web, for a better understanding of pharmacology. These resources include: animations and videos that illustrate mechanism of action of drugs (some of them developed by Dr. Guzman); definitions and concepts from reliable sources about the general principles of pharmacology; press releases and drug reviews from official agencies (FDA, EMEA, NHS, and many others).”
Here’s an example of the content: click here to read a recent post about Direct to Consumer Drug Advertising (Feb 23 2009).
These direct-marketing campaigns, which are aired relentlessly at 630 pm every night in the U.S. while folks are sitting down to dinner… drive me crazy, because who wants to hear a TV ad for mens’ urinary urgency, indigestion or an ad for Viagra when you’re eating with your family – yuck!
I did like his choice of videos.
Today I’ve added his site to add to the blogroll, and also created a new category under Links: Pharmacology and Clinical Therapeutics.
Thanks for the invite, Dr. Guzman!
