Unscrupulous Psychiatrist Outed

Minnesota psychiatrist John E. Simon has been exposed as being in the pocket of Big Pharma (Eli Lilly and others) whilst simultaneously serving on the Minnesota Medicaid Drug Formulary Committee.

Simon received more than $350,000 from various pharmaceutical companies whilst he was serving on a panel providing ‘impartial’ advice to the state on drugs for low income Medicaid patients.

When the conflict of interest was exposed by Associated Press Simon immediately resigned from the panel.
