This is good! I had not seen it; thanks for sharing. Anything to enhance PC education is good.

There is another PC campaign out there...I saw this sign in Key West last month, and in Chicago on Monday of this week. Anyone else seen this one: LINK

I haven't seen any of the links you both gave, and it's discouraging since I think I'm being hypervigilant about awareness. Thanks for both postings.

I'm glad there is an attempt at a program, but this is pretty lame. As if all men were idiots with pop-corn filled fists.

Bittersweet I think,

Any attention is good but both Andrews and Phelps are being compensated by the drug company Amgen. We saw a similar thing with Arnold Palmer and John McEnroe last year...from GlaxoSmithKline

Wonderful, I think, for Amgen to provide funding to support an awareness campaign like this...

I saw the "3-point French Fry" commercial on ESPN's Sports Center this morning while working out on the elliptical at the "Y". The commercial features Billy Packer, Digger, Bobby and Coach Thompson (names familiar to anyone who knows college hoops), and is timely as we approach March Madness.
