Top on the South Florida list was internist Manuel Suarez-Barcelo, who told the Miami Herald that he earned $65,000 by traveling through 11 states, making 41 presentations about the advantages of the Lilly drug Forteo, used to treat osteoporosis. Seven others in South Florida pulled in more than $10,000 each.
