"Not So Different": HealthyWomen Wants to Educate US Women About Biosimilars

November 17, 2019

In October of this year, the nonprofit organization HealthyWomen, a group that seeks to educate women to make informed choices about their health, hosted its first Biosimilars and Women’s Health Science and Policy Forum. The daylong forum offered expert perspectives on the state of biosimilars in the United States, legislative and regulatory updates, and a look at challenges and opportunities for biosimilars to improve women’s access to treatment. This week on the podcast, we’re speaking with one of the presenters from that meeting, Lisa Kennedy Sheldon, PhD, APRN, AOCNP, FAAN.
