Doctor Run Charities
Doctor Run Charities are non-profit groups established to undertake medical research or education by by doctors who work in for-profit private practices. "But because they operate mainly under the radar, the tax-exempt organizations represent what some other doctors, as well as regulators and industry consultants, say is a growing conduit for industry money. The payments, they say, can bias the treatment decisions of physicians, may lead to suspect research findings and at times may even risk running afoul of anti-kickback laws," Reed Abelson reported in the New York Times.
