Debate and public confusion abound about what manufacturers and retailers can and should say about the products we put into our bodies, often resulting in lengthy and time-consuming lawsuits or government actions.  Join FDLI for this two-day conference to learn from and network with leading practitioners and thought leaders in the food and dietary supplement industries, law firms, consumer protection organizations, and regulatory agencies, all of whom will address the biggest issues and challenges in product advertising, labeling, and litigation.

Keynote Address: Douglas Stearn, Deputy Center Director for Regulatory Affairs, Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN)
