Biocom California, Online Event


As the new Administration prioritizes decreasing health inequalities, Biocom California explores ways the industry can collaborate to advance this important priority. FDA sets standards for clinical trials and provides leadership to companies on how to include a diverse population in the trials. Join Dr. Spinner and us to hear insight into how we can better include diverse communities in the development of our products and services.
