Where: The Holiday Inn, Westpark, 1900 N. Ft. Myer Dr., Rosslyn
Description: The average per capita spending on prescription drugs is $1000 and rising, while in other developed countries it is $600. The Trump Administration argues we are subsidizing these other countries, and the drug industry argues that the reason for the prices is their spending on research. The staggering data seem to argue against both excuses. This is an issue which affects all of us, especially those of us who are of “a certain age.”
Bill Corr, former Deputy Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services and now working with former Rep. Henry Waxman at the non-profit Waxman Strategies, has co-authored a major study of the problem of skyrocketing prescription drug prices and what can be done about it, which he will discuss at COFFE’s next luncheon on September 23rd. Bill has spent the bulk of his impressive career advocating for better healthcare access at almost every level of society.
