An expert in the area of health law, Associate Professor Patricia Zettler was recently quoted in an article by the MIT Technology Review titled, “First he held a superspreader event. Then he recommended fake cures.”

“Being a health-care professional is not a magic ‘Get out of FDA free’ card. Federal law still applies,” Zettler said. “The prospect of health-care professionals encouraging patients to use products that the FDA has specifically identified as fraudulent … is deeply troubling,”
