FDA holds social media guidance webinar – July 10, 2014
Technology is continually changing, but FDA’s commitment to public health does not. In today’s world, a tremendous amount of information exchange occurs on the web and through social media. In 2014, FDA’s Office of Prescription Drug Promotion released three highly-anticipated draft guidances detailing FDA’s current views and recommendations on specific social media topics.
OPDP, in the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) consulted with other FDA Centers, including the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER), the Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM), and the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH).
To further our communications with stakeholders, media and the public in this area, FDA will host a webinar and Q&A session on July 10, 2014, from 2:00-3:00 p.m. (EST).
