An Analysis of Prescription Prices: Can We Afford the Cure?
Tom Gochenour will trace the evolution of the prescription marketplace from 1972, the year he became a pharmacist to the present. Through this journey, he will refer to sentinel events and legislation that has led to our current condition in which the list price of some medications can cost over $25,000 per month.
Mr. Gochenour is a part time staff pharmacist and chief compounder for Rush University Medical Center. He is also an adjunct professor at the Chicago College of Pharmacy. He received his BS in Pharmacy from Purdue, 1972; PharmD from the University of Illinois, 1999. He is a Board Certified Pharmacotherapist (BCPS) since 2002.
