North Carolina Regulatory Affairs Forum
(a local forum for those interested in regulatory affairs)

P.O. Box 13474
Research Triangle Park, NC 27709-3474

Meeting Topic:
  Partnering With FDA
  Presentation and Discussion

  John H. Turner
  Regional Food and Drug Director
  FDA, Southeast Region
Mr. John Turner is responsible for directing the programs of FDA
carried out in the Southeast Region of the United States. In April
of this year, a workshop was sponsored by FDA in Atlanta during 
which FDA and representatives from the food, device and 
pharmaceutical industries explored ways to strengthen the 
industry-FDA partnership.  Areas of common interest and concern 
were discussed in an open and honest dialogue.  Mr. John Turner 
has agreed to join NCRAF at our December 7th meeting to bring this 
discussion of an FDA-industry partnership to our area.  The 
discussion will give us an opportunity to hear what progress has 
been made in this initiative, and to offer suggestions on how 
industry and FDA can work together to better meet the needs of the 
country.  We expect a thought provoking discussion that could lead 
to positive changes in the regulatory process, and in the working 
relationships between FDA and the regulated industries.  We encourage
you to join us on Thursday, December 7.
