Detwiler's Directory of Health and Medical Resources is a guide to more than 2,400 health and medical corporations, associations, state and federal agencies, healthcare market research firms, foundations, and institutes. Covering the U.S., Canada, and select international listings, Detwiler's allows users to access sources and contacts within the healthcare markets.

Now in its ninth edition, the 2002­2003 edition of Detwiler's is completely updated.

"No entry is compiled from secondhand information," said editor Susan Detwiler. "Unless we have direct contact with the organization through telephone, fax, direct mail, or electronically, it is not listed in this directory. Organizations that consistently refuse response to our queries are not listed. If they won't answer our queries, we can't be sure they'll answer yours."

Featuring more than 300 new listings, Detwiler's has incorporated hundreds of changes in contact names, 347 new Web sites, 318 additional e-mail addresses, and 131 more toll-free numbers. All entries are indexed by subject, service, publication, and acronym, and are also cross-referenced to parent and subsidiary organizations.
