David W.K. Acheson, M.D., and Josephine P. Briggs, M.D., will deliver presentations during The Conference’s opening session of The Conference hosted by The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) on the morning of Friday, October 3.
Dr. Acheson serves as the associate commissioner for foods under the Office of the Commissioner at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Dr. Acheson’s presentation will focus on the agency’s efforts to protect the nation’s food supply in a global economic environment.
Dr. Briggs, the new director at the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), will outline her vision for NCCAM in the upcoming years and explore how the study of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) fits in the context of rigorous science.
