Medtech Unfiltered: Let's Talk Trump and FDA

Join News Editor Amanda Pedersen on Tuesday via Facebook Live for a candid discussion about President Trump's attempt to bar FDA from regulating laboratory tests. The Medtech Unfiltered live stream will begin at 8 a.m. PST / 11 a.m. EST.

This week's topic will be about President Trump's recent attempt to bar FDA from regulating some laboratory tests, including some for coronavirus. Read MD+DI Managing Editor Omar Ford's report here, and then join me for a candid conversation about the potential consequences of such a decision. Viewers are encouraged to ask questions and share their perspectives via the comments section during the live stream. 

Medtech Unfiltered is a weekly discussion on MD+DI's Facebook page every Tuesday beginning at 11 a.m. Eastern Time, about what matters most in medtech at the moment. In the interest of time, these discussions will be 15 minutes or less.

Ask Amanda — at any time during the Medtech Unfiltered live stream, ask me anything you want, personal or professional, and I will answer at the end of the segment. Anything from my favorite color to my take on a particular market trend is fair game. You may also mail your question in advance to using the subject line “Medtech Unfiltered.” Alternatively, if you prefer to remain anonymous, you may text your question to 310-266-1323 if you’d like to ask anonymously.

Missed last Tuesday's Medtech Unfiltered?  We talked about the strained relationship between the United States and China, and how the ongoing trade war between the two nations is impacting the global medical device supply chain. Watch the replay here.
