Book Launch: Health Advocacy Inc.
Join us for a thought-provoking reading by author Sharon Batt from her book "Health Advocacy Inc.: How Pharmaceutical Funding Changed the Breast Cancer Movement." It is an in-depth look at patients' organizations and funding from the pharmaceutical industry that reviewers have called "vital and disturbing," "riveting," "a compassionate account," and "an alarming historical record."
Sharon Batt is a Halifax-based journalist and scholar who writes about ethical issues in health policy for both popular and academic audiences.
