Our Hearts are A-Twitter: Come Learn About Social Media Issues at the FDLI Annual MeetingMarch 24, 2011
Hyman, Phelps & McNamara's Jeffrey N. Wasserstein (co-founder of the FDA Law Blog) will be moderating a panel on social media and therapeutic products at the FDLI Annual Meeting, April 5-6, 2011, at the Ronald Reagan International Trade Center, in Washington, DC. The panel will discuss current and future regulatory issues with using social media tools to market therapeutic products. With expected guidance coming this year from FDA, now is the time to become current with the issues. Companies with therapeutic products should also look to the Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") for guidance and potential enforcement actions. Speakers include Glenn Byrd, MBA, RAC, of MedImmune, LLC (formerly of CBER's Advertising and Promotional Labeling Branch), Stacey Ferguson, an attorney with the Federal Trade Commission, Division of Advertising Practices, Bureau of Consumer Protection, and Jeffrey Senger, former Deputy Chief Counsel and Acting Chief Counsel of FDA, now at Sidley Austin LLP.
