Who’s Responsible for the High Cost of Pharmaceuticals?

That’s the topic of our next breakfast forum on Sept. 27

The cost of pharmaceuticals takes a toll on consumers, employers and all sectors of the healthcare industry. Who’s responsible for those high costs and what’s the best way to bring them down?

That’s what you’ll learn by attending the breakfast forum sponsored by Oregon Health Forum. The event takes place on Sept. 27 at the Multnomah Athletic Club located at 1849 SW Salmon. .

Breakfast gets underway at 6:45 a.m. followed by a panel discussion at 7:15, with the event wrapping up at 9 a.m. And there’ll be plenty of time for audience questions.

You’ll hear from:

  • Shelley Bailey, Co-Owner, Central Drugs
  • Daniel Hartung, PharmD, MPH, Associate Professor of Pharmacy in the Oregon State University/ OHSU College of Pharmacy
  • Rep. Rob Nosse, D-Portland

Other panelists representing a pharmacy benefit management company, the pharmaceutical industry and an insurer will be announced shortly.

Jesse O’Brien, policy analyst with OSPIRG and OSPIRG Foundation, will be our moderator.

We look forward to seeing you on Sept. 27. For sponsorship opportunities, contact Diane Lund-Muzikant at [email protected].
