Ben Goldacre - “Bad Pharma”
Wednesday, December 5, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM (GMT)
London, United Kingdom
“Medicine is broken. And I genuinely believe that if patients and the public ever fully understand what has been done to them – what doctors, academics and regulators have permitted – they will be angry. On this, only you can judge.”
On December 5th Ben joins us for the evening to give a talk about Bad Pharma, his investigations into the pharmaceutical industry.
