What is PCRM? - Doctors and laypersons working together for compassionate and effective medical practice, research, and health promotion.

 

Prevention


Good Medicine MagazinePCRM promotes preventive medicine through innovative programs:

  • PCRM has led the way for reforms of federal nutrition policies.

  • Our clinical research programs are breaking new ground in diabetes, cancer, and other serious conditions.

  • PCRM’s Cancer Project has provided vital information to tens of thousands of people.

  • The New Four Food Groups is PCRM’s innovative proposal for a federal nutrition policy that puts a new priority on health.

  • Our public service announcement series features medical experts on prevention and health.

  • Research Advocacy


We encourage higher standards for ethics and effectiveness in research:

  • We oppose unethical human experiments. While great strides have been made in eliminating such experiments, problems remain. For example, children are still given synthetic growth hormone in experiments to make them taller, and both children and adults are exposed to unnecessary new drugs which have toxic effects.

  • We promote alternatives to animal research. We have worked to put a stop to gruesome experiments, such as the military’s cat-shooting studies, DEA narcotics experiments, and monkey self-mutilation projects. We also promote non-animal methods in medical education. Currently, more than three-quarters of all U.S. medical schools have dropped their animal labs for medical students.

Organization


Founded in 1985, PCRM is a nonprofit organization supported by physicians and laypersons who receive Good Medicine each quarter. PCRM programs combine the efforts of medical experts and grassroots individuals.
