On October 19th, at 5:00 p.m. Dr. Lex will examine the influence of the
drug industry on the ethical practice of medicine in a lecture titled
“No Free Lunches: Pharmaceutical Industry Influences Physicians
with Food, Flattery and Friendship.” According to Dr. Lex,
heavy-duty salesmanship by pharmaceutical vendors, accompanied by
luxurious marketing perks, threatens to compromise the patient-doctor
relationship and may subject physicians prescribing drugs to
conflict-of-interest charges. This talk will be especially
valuable to students with an interest in health care law and medical
careers and to lawyers who represent the drug companies that are
engaged in such marketing activities.

In the past nine years, Dr. Lex has presented over 100 lectures in
academic, legal and medical settings throughout Europe and North and
South America. A graduate of the University of Texas Health
Science Center, he served his internship and residency at the Thomas
Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia. He is a member of
the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine, a member of the Physicians
for a National Health Plan and a Fellow of the American Academy of
Emergency Medicine. He is the recipient of the Presidential Unit
Citation for Valorous Action in Vietnam, the Combat Medic Badge for
Service in Vietnam, the American Academy of Emergency Medicine James
Keaney Award for outstanding contributions to the AAEM and many other
