Note to Editors/Reporters:

Some previous articles that are frequently accessed contain factual errors and we can help you to avoid having to run a correction.

Mike occasionally does interviews related to his lifelong medical-research and public health advocacy work when there's an opportunity to raise funds for research, increase prevention awareness or recruit scientists. However, his extensive commitments to FasterCures / The Center for Accelerating Medical Solutions, the Milken Family Foundation, the Melanoma Research Alliance, the Prostate Cancer Foundation, the Milken Institute, the Milken Scholars Program, the Epilepsy Research Awards program, Mike's Math Club, the Center for Public Health and other organizations along with writing articles and books and frequent international travel preclude his fulfilling most of the hundreds of interview requests on non-health subjects that he receives each year.

If you plan to mention Mike in an article or broadcast, please note that there are many myths about him and we urge you to check with us if you have any questions about these and other supposed "facts" that are often reported incorrectly.
