Why We Need Action Now On Med School Conflict of Interest

And not sometime next year...

From Seth's Blog (via UD)

Academic Horror Story (Emory University)

From Claudia Adkinson, Emory University dean, to Charles Nemeroff, Emory University professor of psychiatry, in a 2006 memo:

I have been grateful that the reporter was not sophisticated enough to ask all the right questions.

Grateful. She was grateful. Ugh. Double ugh. Professor Nemeroff, you’ll recall, took vast sums of money to advocate the prescription of dangerous drugs to millions of people and hid this fact, even after several warnings. Dean Adkinson was grateful, let me repeat, that a reporter didn’t ask “all the right questions? to expose this.

This is why New York Times reporter John Schwartz’s lack of understanding matters.
