Ep.206 Thanksgiving 2021: Thankful and Vigilant We at The Scalpel wish a Happy Thanksgiving for you and your family. In this episode of The Scalpel, Dr. Rose is grateful and reflective.

About 55 percent, or $3.2 billion, of FDA’s budget is provided by federal budget authorization. The remaining 45 percent, or $2.7 billion, is paid for by industry user fees. The FDA budget is equivalent to $9.95 per American per year.
