In 2010, CDRH held three Town Hall meetings in Minneapolis, Boston, and Los Angeles to provide the public with a new venue to discuss issues of interest with the Center. Any member of the public was invited to provide comments to or ask questions of CDRH participants. Due to the positive feedback we received for holding these meetings we plan to continue this activity in 2011 in three different locations.
The objective of this Town Hall meeting is to engage in a dialogue about issues that are of importance to the public.
The meeting will open with an introduction of CDRH Senior Staff in attendance. Following introductions, Dr. Jeffrey Shuren, the Director of CDRH, will describe CDRH’s Strategic Priorities for 2011. Members of the public will then be given the opportunity to present comments to CDRH Senior Staff followed by Q&A session during which any member of the public may ask questions of the CDRH Senior Staff on any topic of interest.
