Consumer Education and Outreach
Since 2012 Consumer Reports has invested in the development and distribution
of FREE educational materials to support the Choosing WiselyŽ campaign. Through
our efforts, we've built a network of partners to communicate with consumers about
appropriate use of medical tests, treatments and procedures and educate them on
the need for better communication with their doctors. In less than a year, we collaborated
with more than nine medical specialty societies to publish dozens of consumer pamphlets
and videos, in English and Spanish to spread the message. These communication activities
had the potential to reach tens of millions of consumers.
In February 2013, the number of medical specialty societies taking part in the
Choosing Wisely campaign expanded from nine to over 25. Now, Consumer Reports
is seeking help to sustain, improve and grow our communications efforts through at
least March 2015 and introduce new and more innovative approaches to our existing
consumer communications efforts.
Consumer Reports is an expert, independent, nonprofit organization. We do not accept
advertising or corporate support of any kind. By making a tax-deductible donation in
general support of this consumer campaign you will be providing support to a project
that will empower consumers to make better health decisions and help them lead healthier
lives. Contact Tara Montgomery at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
