Medicinal Drugs: R&D, Regulation, Use, & Why They Cost So Much

February 5 @ 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Gary Steinman will present a brief background on drug research, regulation and how drugs and bodies interact followed by a discussion of how drugs should be used and why they are so costly.  His goals are to promote safer and more effective use of the drugs people have to take, to foster more useful discussions between patient and their doctors about these drugs and to make the information as accessible as possible to the general public.

Gary Steinman has a background in biomedical engineering consulting with pharmaceutical and medical device industries on design, planning, and research & development.
