The Partnership for Safe Medicines has announced that discounted registration to their Interchange 2011 meeting will end on September 15th. That’s next Thursday. So if you were thinking about attending, make your decision now and register through this link before the end of next Thursday. After that the fees will increase.
If you are not familiar with the PSM organization or their Interchange gathering I suggest that you read my analysis of last year’s event, “Partnership For Safe Medicines Interchange 2010“. According to the registration web page “The Partnership for Safe Medicines annual Interchange conference brings together law enforcement, policymakers, and industry from around the globe to discuss the impact and battles against counterfeit drugs.”
This year the list of speakers includes:
- John Morton, Director, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
- Robert Hormats, Under Secretary of State for Economic, Energy and Agricultural Affairs, U.S. Department of State
- Deb Autor, Director of Compliance, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER), U.S. Food and Drug Administration
- Alex Bamiagis, Office of the White House Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator (IPEC)
- Xuanhao Chan, World Health Professionals Association and International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP)
- Alex Dahl, Cargo Theft Coalition
The event will occur on October 27, 2011 at 9am at the National Press Club in Washington DC. If you are interested in the problem of counterfeit drugs, their impact and potential government responses (and who isn’t if you are an RxTrace reader), then don’t miss this event.
