Bold Gift Ban

Yesterday, the New Mexico Independent highlighted the University of New Mexico Hospital’s new ban on gifts from pharmaceutical companies. It seems UNMH has correctly identified the potential conflict of interest that comes with gifts from reps of big pharma.

The New Mexico state legislature has taken action on limiting gifts. Taking a page from UNMH and banning all gifts would go a long way toward giving New Mexicans confidence in the legislative process.
