The Academy of Physicians in Clinical Research (APCR) concluded a successful 2017 Annual Meeting in Orlando, Fl on Sunday, October 22, 2017. The meeting kicked off with an exciting town hall discussion lead by physicains providing creative ways to solve the continuous drug price dilemma plaguing the healthcare industry. The meeting featured unique opportunites for physicians to interact with the National Institute of Health and hear an NIH respresentative's perspective on clinical trials. The highlight of the meeting was APCR members getting the opportunity to hear from and speak with clinical trial sponsors at the special non-CME session on Saturday night. APCR conducted its Annual Business Meeting and invited Norman Goldfarb from the MAGI conference to announce our new strategic alliance with MAGI. The business meeting also included the election of new members to the APCR Board of Trustees. The APCR meeting hosted physicians from all areas of clinical research and will continue to be the organization that brings physicians together.
