Program to teach drug company marketing practices

Print More

The Vermont Attorney General’s office will help fund an education program to teach physicians about the marketing practices of drug companies.

Doctors across northern New England and New York will be given information about how to find unbiased information about drugs.

Almost $800,000 will go to researchers at the University of Vermont College of Medicine Area Health Education Centers, Dartmouth College and the Vermont Veterans Hospital in White River Junction.

The funds come from a 2004 settlement that resolved charges that Pfizer’s Warner-Lambert unit violated state consumer protection laws.
