RIGHT-TO-TRY LAWS

This joint Epidemiology-Biostatistics meeting will have a "journal club" format. The goal is to have open discussion about the topic of "right-to-try" experimental treatments. I will provide an initial presentation lasting about 10-15 minutes, summarizing the issues and concerns. For background reading I provide two short editorials, one supporting the legislation (Brown et al. J Nuc Med) and one opposing it (Bateman-House and Robertson, JAMA Int Med). I also attach a somewhat longer piece, for those that are interested to know more detail, prepared by the Congressional Research Service.
