Everything from home remedies to the latest breakthrough drugs are discussed on "The People's Pharmacy." Pharmacologist Joe Graedon and medical anthropologist Terry Graedon talk to leading experts to discuss issues relating to drugs, herbs, home remedies, vitamins and related health topics.

Joe and Terry Graedon are the co-authors of the best-selling "People's Pharmacy" series of books. The Graedon's also write a syndicated newspaper column, which is widely distributed in the US and abroad.

The Graedon's are frequent guests on television news and information programs to discuss issues relating to drugs, herbs, home remedies, vitamins and related health topics. Appearances include public television, Dateline NBC, "20/20," "Extra," "The Oprah Winfrey Show," "Good Morning America," "CBS Morning News," and "NBC Evening News with Tom Brokaw."

Talk about credentials ... ? These folks really have them.

The People's Pharmacy got its start in 1972 in a small village in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico, where Terry was doing research in medical anthropology. Joe began writing a book to explain medications in an easy-to-understand, friendly style. His master's degree in pharmacology from the University of Michigan and his teaching experience with medical students prepared him for this undertaking.

Terry completed her doctoral degree from the University of Michigan and the Graedon's moved to Durham, NC. Terry taught at the School of Nursing and the Department of Anthropology at Duke University and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in medical anthropology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).

Joe has taught at Duke University School of Nursing and the UCSF School of Pharmacy and is an adjunct assistant professor at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, School of Pharmacy, where he also serves on the Board of Visitors.

In 2003 Joe and Teresa Graedon received the Alvarez Award at the 63rd annual conference of AMWA (American Medical Writers Association) for "Excellence  in Medical Communications." Joe was elected to the ranks of AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science) Fellow for "exceptional contribution to the communication of the rational use of pharmaceutical products and an understanding of health issues to the public" in February, 2005.
