The Modesto Area Partners in Science (MAPS) is offering the presentation “Is My Pill a Drug?” by Dr. Lori Silverstein, a former top-ranked Food Drug Administration regulatory agent. The science event is Friday, March 16 at 7:30 p.m. in Sierra Hall 132 on Modesto Junior College’s West Campus and both the program and parking are free.
The science lecture is an informative discussion on regulation of the pharma industry by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and how the FDA ensures efficacy in a world of counterfeits and inferior foreign manufactured products.
Silverstein is currently a regulatory affairs consultant, with over 15 years of experience in investigation and inspection of medical products, devices and pharmaceuticals.
The MAPS event is intended for people over 12 years of age. MAPS programs are made possible by contributions from Modesto Junior College, Associated Students of MJC, MJC Foundation, Great Valley Museum, Stanislaus County Office of Education and Modesto Teachers Association.For more information about the MAPS program visit the website http://maps.events.mjc.edu/, the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Modesto-Area-Partners-in-Science/244618054801.
