How about our other relationships with the industry? APA accepts industry support for educational programs such as fellowships for residents, newsletters for our members, and other special projects. As long as those donations come with no strings other than a discreet acknowledgment—which they do—I see no problem with them. Pharmaceutical companies and others advertise in our journals and in this publication; in a world suffused with advertising, where SSRIs are marketed to the public on primetime TV, it seems difficult to identify the harm that permitting such advertising might cause. Just as members are free to avoid the pharmaceutical exhibits at the annual meeting, they are at liberty to page past the advertisements in our journals.
