INTERVIEW ON THE PRICE OF BUSINESS SHOW, MEDIA PARTNER OF THIS SITE.

Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed Dr. Bob Arnot, chief medical correspondent for NBC’s Dateline, Today and Nightly News shows, medical correspondent at CBS News.

Price and Arnot discuss the outrageous pricing of Takeda’s anti-depressant. On LinkedIn, Arnot noted:
“Why does CEO Christophe Weber of Takeda charge $25,200 a year for an anti depressant to an uninsured US patient? To support his lavish $12,982,580 compensation package. As a lifelong patient advocate, physician and journalist I’m just appalled how poorly patients in the mental health space are treated and even preyed upon. I wrote Christophe months ago about help with any kind of a financial break for a patient. He sent back a URL and an 800 number. They were both dead ends. I’m. writing to each board member and his investors to suggest he resign.”

“Dr. Bob Arnot has over 44 years of experience in medicine where I’ve run an emergency medicine service of nearly 100 hospitals, served as chief medical correspondent for NBC’s Dateline, Today and Nightly News shows, medical correspondent at CBS News, and continue today covering the pandemic for a variety of national and international broadcasting platforms from Larry King and Fox to PBS and Al Jazeera.

He has “also worked in many disease outbreaks as a medical doctor and a humanitarian board member for Save the Children and the UN High Commission for refugees including cholera during the Rwandan Genocide, Ebola in Uganda, Sleeping Sickness in South Sudan, malaria during the Mozambique foods, HIV/AIDS in Botswana, Zimbabwe and Haiti and Dengue in Nicaragua. During COVID, I’ve collaborated with one of the country’s leading medical centers to bring the latest advances to the medical community and general public.”
