Title

Change in Plans 3 Poster Set for Pharmacy Windows

Description

Set of three posters for pharmacy windows titled "Change in Plans" printed in 1955. These "ethical displays" were designed and written by Frank Pinchak, a pharmacist from Paterson, New Jersey. Published by his company Professional Advancement Plan, Pinchak sold the posters to pharmacists around the country. He donated the posters to the American Institute of the History of Pharmacy in 2013. The main poster reads: "Change in Plans: "Big TB Hospital Turns to Cancer" [newspaper clipping]. Effective immediately: Facilities of this hospital now available for treatment of all diseases. In addition - Closing of many TB hospitals throughout the country will save taxpayers millions of dollars annually." Side poster #1 reads: "80,000 new cases every year. Tuberculosis is still the major killer among communicable diseases. 150,000 persons will walk the streets with unreported cases." Side poster #2 reads: "Expensive research has finally produced anti TB drugs in tablet form. In many cases, patients can now be treated at home."
