How to avoid “going viral” with the FDA

Event Description

Lunch and registration will start at 11:45 a.m.  The CLE program will begin at 12:00 noon. 


Social media, search engine optimization (SEO), and paid search campaigns can be attractive marketing tools for pharmaceutical and medical device companies. They typically don’t require a large investment of time/resources or money, you can instantly communicate with millions of potential patients/customers, and these channels offer flexibility in selecting a targeted audience. Although these beneficial tools may help your brand “go viral” with potential customers, they also carry risk if used improperly. 

This CLE event focuses on the following topics:

  • Overview of FDA social media-related guidance documents;
  • Social media and web-related enforcement examples and trends; and
  • Valuable insights and best practices on how to avoid common pitfalls when using social media.
