Each year, the Lown Institute gives out the Shkreli Awards, named for disgraced and imprisoned "Pharma Bro" Martin Shkreli. The awards go to the perpetrators of the most egregious examples of dysfunction and profiteering in healthcare. To be clear, these are not awards that anyone hopes to win. The whole bit serves as an opportunity to examine ways that the American health system puts profit over patients and organizes healthcare in ways that are bad for both patients and front-line health workers. Enjoy seething at this list of the 10 worst.
