ACP Global

ACP held its 16th annual Global Forum on April 28 in San Diego, CA, on “Profits versus Patients: The Global Threat of Rising Drug Prices.” During the Global Forum, presidents and representatives of internal medicine societies worldwide come together to discuss topics of importance to internal medicine specialists and subspecialists. To understand more perspectives about how pharmaceutical pricing constitutes an overall health threat to patients,  read the proceedings in the November/December issue of ACP Internist.
