South Florida doctors paid thousands by Eli Lilly

Miami Herald, August 10, 2009

Eli Lilly has created an online registry detailing payments to 3,400 healthcare providers, including more than two dozen in South Florida in the first three months of 2009. 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.
