Professor Outterson at Seton Hall Law School

For those of you in the New York, New Jersey area, Professor Kevin Outterson, Boston University School of Law and Merck Visiting Scholar, will be speaking tomorrow evening at 6pm at the Seton Hall Law School.  His talk is entitled, "Putting Patients First:  Access to HPV Vaccines for Low- and Middle-Income Populations." 

The HPV vaccine holds the promise to help dramatically reduce cervical cancer but remains out-of-reach for numerous women across the world due to its costs.  Professor Outterson will address the issue of access to the life-saving vaccine and examine ways in which pharmaceutical companies and governments can support both access and innovation.  More about his presentation here.  It should be a great talk and provides information on a topic that often gets overlooked in the excitement over a new vaccine.
