Recently I had the opportunity to testify in front of the Colorado Senate Health & Human Services Committee on the issue of biosimilars. While I think biosimilars represent great opportunity for increased access to treatment (more options for medications, potentially less cost) I also believe that it is important that patients - and their doctors - be notified if the pharmacy gives them a biosimilar instead of the biologic their doctor prescribed. That's what my testimony was about.
Yesterday a camera crew from CBS Denver came to my house to interview me about the issue - and CZL and I were on the local news last night! Unfortunately it's a really short segment on a really complicated issue, so they didn't actually end up using very much of my commentary. But I think some press about the issue is still a good thing.
