PDR Network and The Doctors Company Deliver CME Into REMS
Date:10/14/2010

MONTVALE, N.J., Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- PDR Network, the largest distributor of FDA-approved drug information including Drug Alerts and Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy ("REMS") program alerts, has partnered with The Doctors Company, the country's largest professional medical liability carrier, to provide physicians with Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits for completion of REMS CME programs.

"We congratulate The Doctors Company and P
