MyDrugRep.com, an innovative new sales channel enabling the pharmaceutical industry to market its products and services to physicians, and the California Academy of Family Physicians Foundation (CAFP*F) today announced that MyDrugRep.com will join the eHealth Advisory Board of the Foundation's Corporate Advisory Council.

As an Advisory Board member, MyDrugRep.com will play an integral role in the formulation of the Foundation's ehealth strategic initiatives in conjunction with its technology committee. The Foundation and the California Academy of Family Physicians are seeking industry's advice to help family physicians cope with the rapid rate of technological change in the health industry in order to better serve their patients.

"It's a great honor for us to be working with the CAFP*F to devise a technology vision for family physicians in California," said Quang X. Pham, chairman and chief executive officer of MyDrugRep.com.
