A Showing of Big Pharma Market Failure (Mon. 14 Aug, 2017 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm)

The Columbus Area Region of SPAN Ohio will host the showing of the recently released, 50-minute documentary, Big Pharma Market Failure on Monday, August 14th at 7:00 PM at the Grandview Theater and Drafthouse, 1247 Grandview Ave, Grandview Heights, OH 43212. This 1926 single-screen theater sells beer as well as pizza, subs & pastries from local restaurants. The movie is free and all are welcome. A discussion will follow. Come early and enjoy food and drink before the show...Stay after the show for discussion, food and drink.

 

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.
