forum moderated by Jeremy Pelzer, Cleveland.com

Tuesday September 19, 2017 7-8:30pm
Free & open to the public
Bay Village Branch, Cuyahoga County Library System
502 Calhoun Rd. 44140

RSVP here   Forum flyer is here
Panelists
Scott Knoeur, Chief Pharmacy Officer, Cleveland Clinic

J. B. Silvers, Ph.D. Case Western Reserve University Weatherhead School of Management and School of Medicine

Representative, Ohio Taxpayers for Lower Drug Prices

Representative, Ohioans Against the Deceptive Rx Ballot Issue

Moderator: Jeremy Pelzer, Cleveland.com

The Ohio Drug Price Relief Act, a citizen-initiated statute slated for the November ballot, would require the state of Ohio to pay no more for prescription drugs than the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. And, regardless of how you plan to vote, it could end up being the state’s most expensive ballot-issue campaign ever, according to political analysts and observers.

This forum will have arguments on both sides of this ballot issue and representatives from the Cleveland Clinic and CWRU Weatherhead/Medical School to further debate this complicated subject.
