Expert Town Hall: Extending Care with the 340B Drug Pricing Program

Description

For more than 25 years, eligible hospitals have relied on the 340B Drug Pricing Program to reach more underserved patients. With 340B, manufacturers sell drugs at a discount to these hospitals, which use any related revenue to provide drugs and services to people who are uninsured, homeless, and incarcerated and to similar populations. Hear renowned experts discuss the program and what it means to care for those with the greatest need.
