The Senate Health, Education,
Labor and Pensions Committee havs approved Dr. Robert Califf’s nomination as
the new FDA commissioner, and it is now headed for a full floor vote.
Dr. Califf’s lucrative
dealings with the drug industry are well known—he ran a clinical research
center at Duke University that received the majority of its multi-million-dollar
budget from Big Pharma, and he regularly receives funding from dozens of drug
companies. He is the quintessential fox in the henhouse.
increasingly likely that Congress will approve Califf’s nomination—unless
enough advocates speak out and urge their senators to block his nomination.
Califf’s nomination shows that federal officials are dropping all pretenses of
picking someone who would actually protect public health or stand up to
industry. Please contact your senators immediately and ask them to block Dr.
