The article focuses on a report about United States Pharmacopeia (USP). The author interviewed Judy Boehlert and Loyd Allen. Both have been members of the USP Council of Experts and leading Expert Committees for 15 years. One might think that by now they would be tired of spending 10 hours a week of their free time wading through an endless stream of detailed documents and lengthy meetings. On the contrary, both are eagerly seeking another five-year term, and would encourage others to join them and the 750 other USP volunteers. They are doing it because of their sense of mission. They know that improving drug standards improves people's health, not just in Oklahoma or Vermont, but worldwide, and they want to be involved.
