Date:5/28/2009

Local Roundtable First in a Series of Community Discussions on Improving Access to More Affordable Healthcare and Medicine

SAN FRANCISCO, May 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, the leading generic pharmaceutical company, today held the first in a series of community roundtables as part of their Year of Affordable Healthcare campaign (www.yearofaffordablehealth.com). The event, held at the YMCA San Francisco, aimed at raising awareness of the need for access to more affordable healthcare and medicine for Americans nationwide. In attendance were a wide-range of community organizers, thought leaders, government officials, and members of the San Francisco community.

San Francisco City & County Supervisor Sean R. Elsbernd opened the event with remarks stressing the importance of programs in the city, like Healthy San Francisco and the work conducted by the Health Service System.

The forum was moderated by Pamela Gilbert, Partner at Cuneo Gilbert & LaDuca and former Executive Director of the Consumer Product Safety Commission and featured Janhavi Bonville of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Jeff Schindler of the Haight Ashbury Free Clinic, Erin Reedy of the YMCA San Francisco, and Doreen King-Roberts, the Community Convener for the Neighborhoods West of Twin Peaks. Topics of discussion included universal healthcare, rising costs in California, state healthcare reform needs, and the cost saving potential of biogenerics.

"With healthcare costs skyrocketing in the state of California, now it is more important than ever to bring together communities to discuss innovative solutions to this crisis that affects every American," said Pamela Gilbert.

Today's event is part of a larger drive by the Year of Affordable Healthcare to raise awareness of the need for more affordable healthcare and medicine for Americans. Subsequent community roundtables will be hosted by the Year of Affordable Healthcare this summer in both Chicago, Illinois and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
