FDA Office Hours and Next Meeting
November 8, 2018 at Cintas Center, Xavier University

BREAKFAST, 8:00am - 8:30am

Share breakfast and conversation with FDA and local members of our industries. Network and converse on common problems and how others are solving those issues.

Chapter Meeting, 8:30am - 10:30am

The meeting will include interactive discussion on four critical topics to our industries today:

  • Pharma Cultural and Metrics Initiatives: Learn how FDA is using the Xavier Cultural Model on inspection and how you can prepare your organization.

  • Good Supply Practices (GSPs): Developed by Xavier, FDA and industry, GSPs are currently being adopted as an International Standard by BSI and included as a General Chapter by USP. Gain practical techniques to attack the true root cause of your supply chain failures and protect your organization and the patients you serve.

  • Chief Quality Officer (CQO) Forum: Learn about the work being done with  a cross section of CQO’s across industries to create the Quality Organization of the 21st Century to Protect and Promote Patient Health. Understand the paths being considered, how you might begin to apply these concepts and provide input into this effort.

  • AI in Manufacturing: Learn how your peers are using AI in manufacturing today so you can advance your company’s operations.

Join FDA and your local industry colleagues in thought-provoking discussions that will leave you armed with practical ways to make a difference in your organization. Become a member of the Cincinnati Regional Chapter.
