I spent yesterday attending the American Medical Students Association convention up the road in Houston, and came away very impressed and inspired by the energy of the medical students involved with AMSA's PharmFree campaign ( which I hope to post a more extensive blog in the near future.

Meanwhile, another academic medical center has joined the increasing numbers of those adopting strict policies to keep drug reps and their "free" lunches mostly off the campus. This one is our partner University of Texas institution up the road in San Antonio. Their new policy seems appropriately hard-nosed (, and can be used to put to shame the other UT campuses that have not yet adopted such policies.
