Use of Celebrities for PR and DTC Advertising
"Break a Leg," But Avoid Pratfalls!

Congress is investigating the use of celebrity endorsements in pharmaceutical advertising and recently sent a letter to Pfizer questioning if the use of Dr. Robert Jarvik, a physician and inventor of the Jarvik artificial heart, is misleading consumers. At issue is the fact that Jarvik has never held a license to practice medicine in any state.
