DC-area readers, mark your calendars: Alison Bass, an award-winning journalist and Pulitzer Prize nominee, will be here at George Washington University on Wednesday, March 18th, to speak about why the system of drug research and development in the United States is seriously flawed and what reforms are needed.

Wednesday, March 18, 4:30pm
GWU-SPHHS Health Policy Department
2021 K St. NW, Ste. 800, Washington, DC

Bass is the author of Side Effects: A Prosecutor, a Whistleblower, and a Bestselling Antidepressant on Trial; copies will be available for purchase and signing at the event. The book reads like a legal thriller (I just started it, and had a hard time putting it down), and tells the true story of two remarkable women who exposed the deception behind the marketing of bestselling antidepressant Paxil.

This event is sponsored by the Environmental & Occupational Health Department and the Health Policy Department of the George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services.
