PRESS CONFERENCE<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

 

Leading Members of Congress will join with free market advocacy groups and health policy analysts to hold a press conference to discuss the dangers of  “reimportation” - H.R. 2427, the Gutknecht-Emanuel bill.  This legislation would create dangers to both patients and national security by allowing for the importation of prescription drugs from over two dozen foreign countries.  It would also strip the Food and Drug Administration of the ability to certify that the imported drugs are safe for American consumers.

 

What:               Press Conference to Discuss H.R. 2427 and the dangers of importation of drugs from foreign countries.   Hosted by Frontiers of Freedom Foundation.

 

When:              Friday, July 18th - <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />9:30 AM
