Moderated by Janet Trunzo, senior executive vice president, technology and regulatory affairs, for Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed), the CDRH Town Hall session at The Virtual MedTech Conference provided the audience with a review of CDRH’s work during the pandemic and plans moving forward.
“COVID-19 has presented many challenges to the world, our country, and FDA,” said Jeffrey Shuren, MD, JD, CDRH director. “The greatest tragedy of this pandemic would be if we did not learn from it, and not just how we may be better prepared for the next outbreak, but how we can take the lessons learned to better serve patients at all times.”

On-demand sessions of The MedTech Conference are available through October 23.
