"THINK YOU'RE PROTECTED? YOU'RE NOT! WHAT DOCTORS DON'T KNOW AND THE FDA IS NOT TELLING YOU!" ©
By Lana C. Keeton
Americans go to doctors, whom they trust, who perform surgery on them in accredited hospitals using FDA “approved” products. They believe in the system. Americans don’t ask questions. They trust a system that actually betrays them...Lana Keeton whose journey as a surgical mesh injured patient led her to become a patient advocate, a legal consultant and a voice for those thousands of injured patients at the FDA, on Capitol Hill and in America's healthcare system. Coordinator Jane Howerton
"SELLING SICKNESS" 2013 'PEOPLE BEFORE PROFITS' WEDNESDAY - FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 20-22, 2013, WASHINGTON, D.C.
Panelist on "Grief to Action". Headed by author Rosemary Gibson. How I took my own experience with the horrors of mesh and turned it into a patient advocacy organization, Truth in Medicine Incorporated, to help others.
Mine will be more "Anger to Action" based on the doctor implanting a permanent medical device without my knowledge or consent.
This conference will bring together academic medical reformers, consumer activists, and health journalists to examine the current scope of disease mongering and to develop strategies and coalitions for change. Topics will include misleading marketing, journalistic standards, over-treatment, over-diagnosis, whistleblowers, new roles for advocates, pharmacovigilance, clinical trials, activist narratives, new conflict of interest areas, evidence-based screening, igniting citizen outrage, and more. We will have plenary roundtables, panels, workshops, a unique Good News Exhibit Hall, and Booktivism training. Students and young activists are welcome!

UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI/FLORIDA BIOETHICS CONFERENCE- FRIDAY . APRIL 5, 2013 . MIAMI MARRIOTT BISCAYNE BAY - MIAMI, FLORIDA
It is with great pride, I am an invited speaker at the 2013 UM Bioethics Conference. Ken Goodman, PhD, and Robin Fiore, PhD, head up the University of Miami Bio-Ethics Programs having a direct impact every day on future doctors. I highly respect their work.
“It is a professional conference attracting physicians, nurses, health law practitioners, clergy, social workers, public health staff and hospital administrators. This is a terrific opportunity to speak to the decision makers and the actual health care practitioners who influence health care every day and have the chance to influence their thinking in regard to patient safety.
In 2012, they celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Florida Bioethics Network and the largest sustained professional bioethics conference in the US, one that regularly draws 300 or more in attendance.”
“Kenneth W. Goodman, Ph.D.FACMI, is founder and director of the University of Miami Bioethics Program and its Pan American Bioethics Initiative and co-director of the university’s Ethics Programs, including its Business Ethics Program. The Ethics Programs have recently been designated a World Health Organization Collaborating Center in Ethics and Global Health Policy, one of six in the world and the only one in the United States.”
