Second Annual Health Survey Released

The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) has released its second annual health survey, “From Hope to Cures.”

The survey outlines how Americans feel about their personal health and reveals new trends. The survey was of 1,207 Americans and found that the majority of respondents (66 percent) said they had a good year when it came to their personal health. The survey also found these three trends:

  1. Americans are seeking new sources of health information and are taking decision-making into their own hands.
  2. Troubling myths persist around basic health and wellness issues.
  3. While most Americans are optimistic about their health, minority communities have unique health concerns and barriers.
