Big Pharma Market Failure is the second health care financing exposè produced by Richard Master, the owner and CEO of MCS Industries. It takes a hard look at out of control drug prices and what we can do about it. Richard Master understands growing health care costs from a business perspective, and explains how this alone could put his, and other companies, out of business.

 

A discussion will follow led by Latonya Thurman and William Booth of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF). AHF circulated petitions in Ohio and was able to put the Ohio Drug Price Relief Act on the Ohio ballot this November.

 

Make plans to attend.
