Health News Index – May/June 2001

Health News Index May/June, 2001

The May/June 2001 edition of the Health News Index includes questions about major health stories covered in the news, including the Supreme Court ruling regarding the distribution of medical marijuana and the debate in Congress over a Patients Bill of Rights. This edition also includes findings on public support for certain prescription allergy medicines being sold over the counter.

The Health News Index is designed to help the news media and people in the health field gain a better understanding of which health news stories Americans are following and what they understand about those issues. Every two months, Kaiser/Harvard issues a new index report.
