Pharma Marketing: "Peter Rost Gets Serious About Becoming Obaman's Choice for the New FDA Commissioner"

Check out this article on Pharma Marketing.

Pretty good description on the start of my candidacy for FDA commissioner.

And if you haven't voted in the survey yet, vote now!

Here's what's interesting about the results:

Not only did it come as a bit of surprise to me that I appear to have taken the top spot so far, but the background of those who voted made this even more interesting:

- 17% consumer/patient
- 22% drug company employees
- 6% physician healthcare employees
- 21% advertising/pr agency employees.
- 3% FDA or other government employees
- 15% academia
- 14% journalist/blogger

Also, about 80% of those who voted were neutral to very supportive of the drug industry.

"Peter Rost gets serious." Now there's an improbable concept.

Hi, Dr. Rost:

I posted a very similar comment on John Mack’s blog, but am hoping that by posting on your blog, as well, I will be helping you to BECOME FDA COMMISSIONER. (Won’t that be exciting?)

I forwarded John’s email about you to several people on my email list, and asked them to read the story on his blog, to vote for you -- and then, to pass the emails (mine and his) on to others.

I am including my email here. If anyone would like to copy and use it, I'd be delighted. (I believe the saying, "Plagiarism is the highest form of flattery," applies here!)

Here is my email letter:

I am on John Mack’s (http://pharmamkting.blogspot.com) list, and just received this email from him. (Please scroll way down, below.) I am forwarding it on to a very few people, in hopes that you will read it, vote for Peter Rost (former VP of Marketing for Pfizer) for FDA Commissioner, and then forward it on to others.

The whole incredible story is below. But basically, Peter Rost, former VP of Marketing for Pfizer (and Pfizer whistleblower) is actually in the running for the post of FDA Commissioner. I voted for him on the Pharma Marketing blog, and it seems that so did 99 others! Now both the story and the voting are “going viral” -- and even a German newspaper has written about Rost’s candidacy.

The thing that makes this within the realm of actually becoming a reality is that, four years ago, Rahm Emanuel, Barack Obama’s new Chief of Staff, released the following statement about Peter Rost:

“I would like to nominate Dr. Rost for the Guts of the Year award. Courageous whistleblowers like Dr. Rost have helped make the tobacco industry accountable for misconceptions about the health risks of smoking. Over the past several years, whistleblowers have uncovered major accounting scandals with consequences for millions of Americans. I want to thank Dr. Rost for blowing the whistle on the pharmaceutical industry, breaking down myths perpetuated by the industry that help keep prices – and profits – high at the expense of American families.”

The usual way things happen is that Pharma insiders become FDA Commissioner. We have a new President (whom many of us worked for). Let’s help him to take notice, and to change the way things are done at the FDA!!

Thanks so much for reading this, for voting for Peter Rost, and for passing this email on to others. Let’s continue to make a difference by making this happen!

Von Eschenbach left FDA in January when President Barack Obama took office and has kept mum about his future plans.
