From a press release:
The Pacific Research Institute, a free-market think tank based in California,
announced today the establishment of the Center
for Medicines in the Public Interest (http://www.rxcmpi.org), a
clearinghouse for up-to-the-minute analysis on the policies that affect the
development, accessibility, and safety of pharmaceuticals...
The centerpiece of the CMPI is a drug policy web log www.drugwonks.com
which the Center will launch next month. The blog s featured commentators
policy experts, physicians, scientists, and regulators will help to inform the
public debate and promote policy solutions that advance public health. Features
will include links to media commentary, white papers, and speeches, as well as
commentary on breaking news. The Center will also host periodic panel
discussions and other public events.
This could get very interesting! I'd urge CME providers to contribute their unique perspectives on all this, because I'm guessing you all might have a few things to say about it!
