Following the unprecedented use of social media throughout President Obama's campaign, the new administration will bring a fresh perspective to digital regulations for healthcare. Companies will need to become educated on how new regulatory policies will affect their online communications. As the administration and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) begin to review existing policy and move to create new guidelines, now is the time for pharmaceutical and biotech companies to learn how to effectively engage their audiences online to stay ahead of the competition.
The panel will focus on the regulatory concerns currently faced by pharmaceutical and biotech companies when engaging online. Presenters on the panel include the following:
* Mark Gaydos, senior director, U.S. Regulatory Affairs Marketed Products, Sanofi-Aventis * Sanjay J. Koyani, director, Web Communications, FDA * Christina Pearson, former Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services * Jenny Moede, executive vice president, Waggener Edstrom Worldwide Healthcare * David Almacy, vice president, WE Studio D, Waggener Edstrom Worldwide
