The College of Pharmacy and Center for Ethics and Human Value present a colloquium on "Ethical Issues Surrounding the Underregulated Supplement Industry" with guest speaker Pieter Cohen, MD (Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School) and commentator Patricia Zettler, JD (Associate Professor of Moritz College of Law). This event is organized and moderated by Jason Chen, the postdoctoral researcher in applied ethics at the College of Pharmacy and Center for Ethics and Human Values.
Past research has shown that supplements sometimes do not contain the active ingredients stated on their labels and that some even contain contaminants. This raises wide health concerns given that more than half of all Americans take dietary supplements. How should the supplement industry be regulated?
This event is open to the public.
