Critical Supply: Drug Shortages
Last week, WFAE reporter Michael Tomsic presented a series on drug shortages in North Carolina. Drug shortages at hospitals and pharmacies are on the rise, even described as "the new normal" by one hospital pharmacist. We'll talk with Michael Tomsic about his report and talk with a panel of experts about why the drug shortages are occurring, the dangers of chronic drug shortages, and how some companies are actually profiting off the problem, when Charlotte Talks.
