2012 Symposium on Market Access in Diabetes

Thursday, November 8, 2012 - 6:00pm

The MBiotech Class of 2013 will be presenting a Symposium on Market Access in Diabetes (SMAD) on November 8, 2012. 

Date: November 8, 2012
Location: University of Toronto Mississauga
Instructional Building, Room 120
Refreshments: 6:00pm, Symposium: 6:30-9:30pm

Public market access for pharmaceuticals has become an increasingly contentious issue in Canada, as patients, industry, and payers have increasingly divergent views about what is the value of medicines. 

How can we build a fair reimbursement system which offers the broadest possible access to medicines for patients, provides a cost-effective solution to payers, and yet still rewards industry innovation? 
 
In this year's MBiotech symposium, we hope to explore some of the key issues in the market access discussion, in the context of the growing population of type II diabetes patients in Canada.
 
If you would like to attend the symposium on November 8th, 2012, please register online. The event is free! Registration will help us with food and other accomodations for symposium attendees.
