Wonder if Gary Mendell feels good demonizing opioid pharma’s influence, while his board member Thomas McLellan sits on Indivior’s board! Price of doing business, huh
#PainProfiteers #Hypocrites yubanet.com/california/ag-…
#AndrewKolodny also sits along-side McLellan on #Shatterproof’s board. They’ve lobbied relentlessly to force the CDC guidelines into state and federal laws. This has caused irreparable harm and to this day, goes unchecked.
Here, McLellan lists MAT and “evidence-based” treatments, seeing the gold-mine in changing insurance funding requirements to not only mandate MAT (Suboxone, etc) but to pay more to treatment programs that offer this. Mendell expands on this w/his program. huffpost.com/entry/stopping…
The last pic showing how Mendell urges the federal govt to think of practicing medicine by limiting opioids(mmes, rx amt, etc) in the same way as speed limits.

Have a look at Anna Lembke’s official statements about opioids for her expert witness testimony. #opioids #PainProfiteers #PROP #COIs #Pain

A podcast from a few years ago that showcases her blatant and unapologetic ableism. *Trigger warning.* It’s worse than her Ted talk. nutritionheretic.com/drug-dealer-md/

This is the Dec, 2015 IPRCC meeting that talks about HHS’ plan and the CDC guidelines. Starting at 4hrs, 18 min, we have Wanda Jones, principal deputy to asst. sec of HHS speak about how HHS planned the guidelines. This is really interesting info.
At 4 hrs 41 min, the CDC rep presents the overview of the guidelines. At 4:52 sec., the Q and A’s. This really shows how there were a lot of concerns from the research panel (NPS) about the consequences and methods/bias involved in the formation of the CDC GLs.
#ipp #cpp #PROP
At 5 hrs 24 min we have the evidence that shows the IPRCC (NPS) was not happy about the CDC guidelines and had a discussion about how to handle that. Listen carefully. videocast.nih.gov/watch=17523
