ANA Patient 2008 survey, now on the website!
« on: April 16, 2009, 01:30:07 pm »
Hi all,

The ANA-sponsored 2008 Patient survey has just been published on the ANA website:

http://www.anausa.org/patient_survey.html


A very interesting read.... I scanned through the whole thing and the stats are very interesting.

You must have Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader to open the document/survey. If you don't have it on your computer, you can download a free evaluation version at www.adobe.com

Happy Reading!
