Symposium on Healthcare 2014: Save the Date
Center for Law, Health and Society, in conjunction with Troutman Sanders LLP and the Metro Growth Center will hold a one day symposium, “Healthcare Meets the Environment: A Symposium on Pharmaceutical Waste Management” on Friday, Jan. 31.
Population growth including an aging population, preventative medicine, and improved treatment options have all contributed to an increase in the use of prescription and over-the-counter medication. While the benefits of these drugs cannot be overstated, their use does have environmental consequences.
In preparation for the Spring 2014 release of EPA’s proposed healthcare facility-specific pharmaceutical waste management standards, this one day symposium will explore drugs in the environment, regulatory trends, proposed regulations by the EPA and industry leaders.
