What Congressional committees have jurisdiction over FDA and what are their specific areas of focus? Congressional Committee experts will sort out the  jurisdictions and roles of the Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions (HELP) Committee, the House Energy and Commerce Committee, the House/Senate Appropriations Committees, relevant subcommittees, and how they interact with other Congressional Committees and FDA. The webinar will discuss how Committee authorities have changed over time, rules and procedures, how committee inquiries originate, and recent inquiries, referrals, and investigations.

Aliza Fishbein Silver, Health and Oversight Counsel, Senate Committee on HELP
Moderated by Wade Ackerman, Partner, Covington & Burling LLP
