ST. LOUIS, and BETHESDA, Md., March 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Dr. Michael S. Kinch and Lori Weiman announce the publication of The Price of Health: The Modern Pharmaceutical Enterprise and the Betrayal of a History of Care. This groundbreaking new book reveals the story of how the pharmaceutical enterprise took shape with the unintended consequences that have led to ever-escalating drug prices.

The Price of Health reveals how medicines have been made and distributed to consumers throughout the years, providing new clarity on a sea of changes that have contributed to rising costs affecting everyone’s access to the latest medical advances.
