Volunteer: www.worstpills.org

Public Citizen is seeking a volunteer to respond to health-related emails and other correspondence from the public. Responses will consist mainly of directing individuals to the drug information in our book, Worst Pills, Best Pills, and on our website, www.worstpills.org, and clarifying our positions on why certain drugs are not safe to take. Volunteer will coordinate responses to consumers with staff of the Health Research Group

Volunteer would work out of the Public Citizen office at Dupont Circle in Washington, DC one or two days a week.

Public Citizen’s Health Research Group has been publishing Worst Pills, Best Pills, for a decade and has labeled 53 top-selling drugs “DO NOT USE under any circumstances.” We promote research-based, system-wide changes in health care policy and provides oversight concerning drugs, medical devices, doctors and hospitals and occupational health. We work to ban or relabel unsafe or ineffective drugs and medical devices.


  • a basic professional knowledge of prescription drugs (at least RN or equivalent)
  • good grammatical and writing skills
  • basic knowledge of the internet and email

Interested parties should submit a resume to Benita Marcus at bmarcus@citizen.org or with the form below.
