About MedShadow Foundation
Founded in 2012 by Suzanne B. Robotti, MedShadow Foundation seeks to educate patients and encourage discussions between consumers and health care providers about the short-term and long-term side effects of medicine. MedShadow Foundation uses its website and various social media platforms to gather and report news and resources related to the side effects, risks and benefits of prescription and over-the-counter drugs. While recognizing the beneficial, often life-saving effects of medicine, accurate and complete information on side effects is frequently lacking and MedShadow seeks to fill that void.
