Prescription Drug Costs: A Forum with Rep. Sean Casten & Experts

Join IL-6 Congressman, Sean Casten, and experts (fabulous panel below) to discuss policy solutions to out-of-control costs for prescription drugs.

Why have the costs of prescription drugs skyrocketed? What should Congress do to stop the trend? Why can’t the government negotiate drug prices?

Hear an overview of how we got in this mess, what policy options are being discussed, and what you can do about it! Submit your questions for the panel here: https://forms.gle/WE7Xf9i4aT36cTK47

Please RSVP for free tickets, as we expect a sell-out crowd.
