Yesterday, President Biden announced Dr. Monica Bertagnolli as his intended nominee for Director of the NIH.
BIG PFIZER CONNECTION!
For your information:
- From 2015 through 2021, Bertagnolli received more than 116 grants from Pfizer, totaling $290.8 million. This amount made up 89% of all her research grants, according to Open Payments, a national transparency program under the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services that collects and publishes information about financial relationships between drug and medical device companies and certain health care providers.
- She was also the 2015 RECIPIENTS OF “THE CHARLIE” – PFIZER AND THE ALLIANCE FOR CLINICAL TRIALS IN ONCOLOGY.
Oh, and guess what… The White House left the Pfizer connection out of its announcement of the nomination. I’m not shocked that they totally fail to mention the Pfizer connection since, like most people, I’ve become accustomed to the government’s routine manipulation of the public.
But does this mean Dr. Bertagnolli is personally corrupt? Not at all. However, it does mean that she will probably represent the viewpoints and priorities of the pharmaceutical industry. That is how agencies are captured.
