The new administration, leadership and legislation all contribute to the recent changes in how the FDA performs its role. At the same time, manufacturers of pharmaceutical products, nutritionals, medical devices and diagnostic equipment, and other medical technologies are constantly looking for new ways to distribute, market and sell their products. Many would say that the effects of this combination are putting businesses under more regulatory scrutiny, subjecting companies to more liability and delaying the availability of new products and therapies to healthcare providers and ultimately, the public. This program will bring experts from industry and the regulatory environment together to discuss whether this is indeed the case and review strategies for the future.
