USA Today op-ed: Will restricting gifts to doctors reduce pharmaceutical influence?

So, what’s better than having one opinion piece published in a week?

Well, how about two.

My latest USA Today op-ed was published this morning: Pads, pens, prescriptions.

I talk about the “voluntary ban” that the pharmaceutical industry has instituted on itself, preventing doctors from receiving any type of gifts from drug representatives.

Will restricting gifts to doctors remove the specter of Big Pharma hovering over your doctor’s prescribing pen?

Read and find out, and I hope you enjoy the piece.
