#PWChat Recap: 1-Year Follow-Up on Healthcare Under President Trump

The #PWChat series rolled on with another informative discussion with co-host Linda Girgis, MD.

We discussed where we now stand with TrumpCare since the version we knew a year ago is essentially dead, reactions to Pres. Trump’s touting in his 1st State of the Union address (Jan 30, 2018) of the FDA’s approval of more drugs last year than any other year on record, his plan to decrease prescription drug prices, the impact on the US healthcare systems as a whole, as well as on patients and healthcare professionals, and more!

Below are the highlights from the chat. You can read the full transcript here.
