It is time for patients' voices to be heard as stakeholders and for public support for increased medical device industry accountability and heightened protections for patients. Post-market registry. Product warranty. Patient/consumer stakeholder equity. Rescind industry pre-emptions/entitlements. All clinical trials must report all data.

Three winners will have travel and costs covered to attend the 4th annual Mayo Clinic Social Media Summit October 15-19, 2012 in Rochester, MN 
Registration costs $1200 (not including travel/lodging/meals) so most patients/caregivers and patient advocates cannot afford to attend.
Contest ends August 4, 2012.
