How to help
MICHELE BRILL-EDWARDS, MD, FRCP(C).
- Dr. Brill-Edwards is a paediatrician and an authority on the application
of Canada's Food and Drugs Act to protect the public from health hazards
and fraud in research and treatment involving prescription drugs.
- Dr Brill-Edwards spent 15 years with Canada's Health protection Branch
and was senior physician responsible for the regulation of prescription
drugs from 1988 to1992. Aware of repeated irregularities within the
drug approval process, jeopardizing lives to bow to political and industry
pressures, Dr. Brill-Edwards resigned from the Health Protection Branch
in January 1996. Her public disclosure of the deficiencies of the drug
regulatory process has focused new attention on Canada's systems for
protecting the public on food, drug and blood safety issues.
- Dr. Brill-Edwards is now in private consulting practice in Ottawa
