Webinar with Bloggers: New FDA Basics Web Resource


Do you and your readership have questions for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)?

The FDA is pleased to announce the availability of a new Web resource, FDA Basics, which answers your questions and discusses other important public health topics in a useful and user-friendly format.

The tool answers questions such as:

  • How and where do I find out if a drug is approved for use?
  • When can I be sure that it is okay to buy previously recalled foods when they are back on the shelf?
  • How do I know if I’m eligible to donate blood?
On Tuesday, January 12, at 4 p.m. ET, the FDA will host a webinar for bloggers interested in health-related topics. The featured speaker, Dr. Joshua Sharfstein, Principal Deputy Commissioner of the FDA, will showcase the new tool, discuss opportunities for the public to submit questions to FDA, and outline FDA efforts to enhance transparency across the agency. After the presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask questions or offer feedback.
