FDA Patient Listening Sessions

FDA Patient Listening Sessions are one way patient communities and FDA staff connect about the experiences of living with specific diseases and conditions. The Reagan-Udall Foundation works closely with the Patient Affairs team in FDA’s Office of Clinical Policy and Programs/Office of the Commissioner to conduct these small, informal discussions. Patients, caregivers, and advocates provide personal insight into the day-to-day challenges of living with a specific disease with staff from FDA’s medical products centers: Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, and Center for Devices and Radiological Health.
