Vanderbilt bans most gifts from drug firms

The Tennessean, January 31, 2008
Vanderbilt University Medical Center has decided to stop those who work on its campus from accepting meals or gifts from the drug industry in a bid to reduce the companies' influence on patient care and trim spending. Under the policy, most employees and students would no longer be allowed to accept lunches, pens with logos or other freebies from pharmaceutical companies or other suppliers.
