    What is the Real Cost of Developing Medicine?

    What is the Real Cost of Developing Medicine?

    Panna Sharma, CEO of Lantern Pharma, discusses how his company is bringing cancer therapies to the market faster, cheaper and at a lower cost than other biotechs through artificial intelligence, machine learning and genomic data. He emphasizes that it shouldn’t cost $2 billion to make medicine. He shares it costs this much because Big Pharma is artificially inflating pricing. 
    Lantern Pharma is changing healthcare because it is developing new medicines significantly cheaper than big pharma, in a time frame that is unheard of, with only a dozen people.

Educating the Consumer!

Great content that gives the consumer a greater understanding of how healthcare can be less complicated if you know what questions to ask and who to ask them too.

Great content and great delivery

Healthcare Americana is one of my favorite podcasts. Christopher Habig has a knack for conducting interviews; his style is relaxed yet professional. Unlike so many media hosts, he comes across as very authentic and has deep knowledge of the healthcare field.
