FDA Science Writers Symposium, November 4-5

Writing About the Future of Public Health 

Science is a key foundation for the decisions FDA makes day on a wide-range of products affecting human and animal health—from the most common food ingredients, to complex medical and surgical devices, to lifesaving drugs.

The Second Annual Science Writers Symposium on November 4 and 5, 2009, will highlight how the FDA applies novel scientific approaches to critical public health issues and the products it regulates. The symposium, featuring a lab tour and presentations by FDA scientists, will give writers a unique insight into the evolving field of regulatory science with an eye towards generating potential story ideas.
