60 Massachusetts doctors took speaker fees from drug giant

Boston Globe, September 29, 2009

At least 60 Massachusetts doctors collectively have earned more than a half-million dollars in 2009 as speakers paid by Eli Lilly & Co. The doctors in question include two Boston Medical Center physicians whose participation is being reviewed for possible violation of a hospital policy against marketing activities by its doctors. Boston Medical Center said it would investigate the matter and directed the physicians not to make any further presentations on behalf of Lilly in the meantime.
