  Thursday Forum- Prescription Drugs, Patients, Doctors, Pharmaceutical Companies and Regulators
   
Thursday, March 09, 2017; 8:45 AM - 11:30 AM  See other Dates
Coe College

Led by freelance medical and scientific writer Rebecca Anderson, a 1971 graduate of Coe, this series will cover everything from significant historical events and drug discovery to clinical trials and regulatory oversight.
The second week presents an overview of the multiple ways that drugs are discovered. The third session explains how drugs move from test tube to the pharmacy. The evolution of human experimentation from World War II to the present will be described using several historically significant events such as the Declaration of Helsinki, the Tuskegee syphilis study, and the clinical trials for treating cancer, arthritis, Ebola and Zika.
The fourth week will unite information presented in the first three lectures through a discussion of contemporary issues affecting consumers, regulators and the pharmaceutical industry. Examples include: drug pricing, prescription drug abuse/overdosing, the placebo effect, drug testing in women and children, nutritional supplements, Right to Try laws, watchful waiting, and drug advertising.
Thursday Forum lectures are held in Kesler Lecture Hall in Hickok Hall on the Coe campus. Each session begins with registration and refreshments from 8:45-9:15 a.m., followed by the class until 11:30 a.m. An optional luncheon is offered at the conclusion of each series.
