Exposing fraud in the generic drug industry: A reporter's journey
12/02/19 New York, NY
POSTPONED because of weather. Check back for information about when this is rescheduled.
New York investigative medical journalist Katherine Eban will talk about the industry and her new book "Bottle of Lies."
Her work reveals how rampant fraud among generic drug manufacturers and lax FDA oversight put patients' health at risk. In the United States, 90% of spending for all pharmaceuticals goes for generic drugs because health insurers limit choice by steering patients to these medications, which are cheaper than brand-name drugs.
TIME: 6:30 pm Wine and cheese at 6.
WHERE: New York State Health Foundation, 1385 Broadway at 38th St.
Eban participated in an AHCJ webcast on the subject. This New York chapter event will give you a chance to delve more into her work and ask questions.
