She’ll deliver the Center for Values in Medicine, Science and Technology Lecture at 7:30 p.m. this evening at UT Dallas. Find more information here.

    Thanks for this enlightening program. I am proud of this doctor taking the risk to expose this travesty in the pharmaceutical and its degradation on the efficacy, quality, and expense of quality of healthcare outcomes.

    I am thrilled to know about the work of Dr. Beatrice Golomb. I have volunteered as patient advocate at the federal level for 5 years to heighten patient protections from unsafe and ineffective implanted medical devices. The aggressive maneuvers of the pharma industry are nothing compared to some of the implanted medical device industry actors! The demands on ethical doctors to resist ‘branding’ can be relieved by giving patients accurate post-market information and legislating criminal penalties for knowingly marketing implants that harm patients. Thank you for airing this excellent interview.
