In November 2023, FSU College of Medicine BSSM Associate Professor Joe Gabriel, Ph.D., delivered a lecture at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in Boston titled “Proprietary Medicines and the Crisis of American Pharmacy, 1918-1942.” Gabriel’s talk focused on how the increased sale of proprietary medicines led to a professional crisis among pharmacists related to their loss of autonomy, economic instability, and increased legal jeopardy and their response to the situation.
