Wyeth University

In 2002, just as the rest of the world was reading headlines about the dangers of hormone replacement therapy, the University of Wisconsin was setting up a Wyeth-funded CME course encouraging doctors to prescribe it. "For the next six years, thousands of doctors from around the country took the online course that was funded entirely by a $12 million grant from Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, which makes the hormone therapy drugs used in the study, Prempro and Premarin. The university received $1.5 million of that total, and university faculty received money as well." Read more in the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel.
