Build Your Network at the PDA/FDA JRC

by Rebecca Stauffer, PDA

One of the best parts of attending the 2017 PDA/FDA Joint Regulatory Conference is networking with fellow attendees and making lasting connections. Each year, the meeting brings together individuals from industry and global regulators with the goal of finding solutions to common problems. And this year is no different, with a number of opportunities for attendees to connect with each other and discuss how to tackle the issues affecting our industry.
