Congress Must Address Shortage of Critical Drugs

Dr. Rao Musunuru, a Pasco cardiologist, writes of his great concern about the shortage of certain prescription drugs that are important in critical-care medicine in a column published by theTampa Bay Times. He lists the reasons for the shortage, says it is getting worse despite President Obama's order to the FDA to do something and says Congress must do its part to help.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
