MDMA Hosts 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting

 

MDMA hosted our 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting today where we heard from CDRH Director Jeff Shuren, three Members of Congress, Adam Boehler, White House COVID-19 Task Force Advisor, and FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn. Commissioner Hahn and Director Shuren updated attendees on what FDA is doing at this time to address the COVID-19 crisis while still continuing to approve life-changing medical devices. Dr. Hahn's speech is available here.

 

During this time of uncertainty, speakers provided clarity on the path going forward for the health care system, our economy and the nation.  Dr. Shuren provided an overview of the tremendous collaboration between innovators and regulators to enhance patient care.  With each Member of Congress, MDMA addressed the need to accelerate patient access to deferred procedures, provide liquidity to companies impacted and urged them to continue working in a bipartisan manner to address the pandemic. Policy makers praised our industry for developing new innovations and ramping up production of many supplies needed to confront COVID-19.
