Policy Prescription is a website dedicated to blogging about public policy, politics, and law as it relates to drug prices, drug importation, online pharmacies, and prescription drug safety.
I’m Gabriel Levitt, president and co-founder of PharmacyChecker.com, a company that verifies online pharmacies and compares prescription drug prices. I’m also the founder of Prescription Justice, a non-profit organization that works to end the crisis of high drug prices in America.
I have testified before Congress; published several op-eds, including in the New York Times, The Guardian and The Nation; submitted myriad public comments to federal agencies, such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office; and organized and participated in several international conferences, such as the UN Internet Governance Forum, all about the issues germane to this blog.
I am president emeritus of the United Nations Association Brooklyn Chapter and formerly on the Board of Advisors of the Business Leaders for Health Care Transformation. I have a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and International Relations from Roger Williams University and a master’s degree in International Relations from American University. I live in Brooklyn, NY, with my wife Rebecca, a psychiatric nurse practitioner, sons Casper, Max and Wyatt – and a chihuahua named Cole Madison. Feel free to follow me on Twitter and LinkedIn.
