The Aggressive Marriage Between Pediatric Associations and Industry

There is an increase in the association of pediatric associations with formula companies for conferences and publications in many countries. When companies like Nestles and Gerber sponsor pediatric association conferences, I believe the wrong message is sent and people have the impression that the pediatric association is endorsing, as opposed to simply sponsoring, formula company products.

A positive example is The Indian Pediatric Association. It does not use formula company money for its conferences and scholarships and so does not promote the formula companies.  Any more positive (or particularly awful negative) examples that you have in mind? Leave it in the comments.
