Dr. Thomas Stossel on Physician Regulation and Medical Conflict of Interest
American Cancer Society professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Thomas Stossel fights an uphill battle against mainstream media. The challenge? To convince the public that financial conflict of interest laws hurt the practice of medicine, like the unintended consequences from the Physician Payments Sunshine Act. Stossel gives public lectures, speaks before Congress, and writes opinion articles, hoping to persuade the public that a solution must be found. In a presentation during Reason Weekend 2014, Stossel tells how despite his continuing efforts, he is pessimistic about the future of medical conflict of interest regulations.
