“The Prescription Drug Pricing Problem” with Bill Corr, former Deputy Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services. Bill holds a B.A. in Economics from the University of Virginia and a J.D. from Vanderbilt University School of Law. Bill has spent the bulk of his impressive career advocating for better healthcare access at almost every level of society. Bill’s major legislative and oversight responsibilities included the Brady Bill, the Nutrition Labeling and Education Act, prescription drug and state insurance regulation, the S&L industry, and several Supreme Court nominations. The average per capita spending on these drugs is $1000 and rising, while in other developed countries it is $600. Some argue that we are subsidizing these other countries, and the drug industry argues that the reason for the prices is their spending on research. The staggering data seem to argue against both excuses. is an issue which affects all of us, especially those of us who are of “a certain age.” Health Affairs points out: “To avoid reporting lower revenue and profits (due to the loss of patent protection on older drugs), drug manufacturers have been imposing large annual price increases, often 10 percent or more, on all drugs that remain protected by monopolies. The cumulative effect has been to double or triple the price of top-selling branded drugs such as Humira, Lyrica, Lantus, and many others. That is why US drug prices are the highest in the world.” Bill Corr, along with former Rep. Henry Waxman, has co-authored a major study of the problem of skyrocketing prescription drug prices and what can be done about it, which he will discuss.

"Who Shall Live and Whom Should We Let Die: COVID-19’s Ethical Landscape" with Dr. Mildred Solomon, President of the Hastings Center on Bioethics. Historically, pandemics raise a set of excruciatingly difficult ethical and moral questions. How should we allocate scarce resources like lifesaving ventilators, protective equipment or vaccines? Should the young be prioritized over the old? As we aim at creating new therapeutics and vaccines quickly, what are acceptable trade- offs between speed and safety? What is the proper balance between civil liberties and public health e.g., requiring a quarantine? What should we do about the fact that in the COVID-19 pandemic, African Americans are dying at three times the rate of white American? To help us discuss these issues, Dr. Mildred Solomon, the president of the nation’s founding bioethics research institute in New York, and Professor of Global Health and Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School, will describe COVID-19’s ethical landscape. She will raise for discussion the major ethical issues we must resolve to bring the pandemic under control and will help us think about how we might rebuild our society. Mildred Z. Solomon, EdD is Professor of Global Health and Social Medicine, Part-time and a core faculty member of the Center for Bioethics at HMS, where she directs the school’s Fellowship in Bioethics. Professor Solomon is also the president of The Hastings Center, an independent research institute in Garrison, NY that explores ethical issues in health, health care and the life sciences.

Ten years ago, Rob Liebreich and his family noticed that his mother, Wendy, started repeating herself and struggling with her ability to focus. She was showing signs of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). As he was actively working in the field of senior living and healthcare at the time, Rob sought ways to treat the challenge. He was unable to find an existing program that was specific to MCI, so with help from colleagues and other experts, Rob and his family created their own. Today, this family-inspired innovation has evolved into the Goodwin House StrongerMemory program.



StrongerMemory by Goodwin House provides a curriculum designed to stimulate the brain’s prefrontal cortex, which governs our ability to retrieve memories. The program encourages participants to spend just 20 to 30 minutes a day reading aloud, writing or journaling and quickly completing simple math problems. Through consistent use of StrongerMemory exercises, Rob’s mother and others have noticed improvement in their ability to focus, find misplaced items and remember conversations.
