Opening Remarks from the DIA Pharmacovigilance Strategies Conference


Today marks the beginning of the DIA Pharmacovigilance and Risk Management Strategies Conference in Washington, D.C., and the aura around the event is incredible. Industry speakers, short courses, hot topics, networking, education, and round-table discussions. All dedicated to enhancing the foundation for strong strategic planning and practical decision-making in pharmacovigilance programs.

The Perficient team is learning so much already, but the focus this morning is on Asia-Pacific or APAC reporting, especially on the requirements in China.
