MedCon 2017

The FDA/Xavier University Medical Device Conference, MedCon, is a conference with formal FDA partnership that engages medical device manufacturers in discussion on how to increase the consistency and reliability of product quality while complying with FDA regulations.

Plan on attending MedCon 2020, happening May 5-8.

This has been one of the best conferences that I have attended.
