Letter to Secretary Azar about Proposal to Lower Drug Costs by Targeting Backdoor Rebates and Encouraging Direct Discounts to Patients

Please join us as a cosponsor of H.R. 2420, the National Museum of the American Latino Act. Nearly 58 million Latinos, or 18.1 percent of the population, reside in the United States. By 2060, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates this population will reach
