May 13 - Spiritual Growth Ministry

The Spiritual Growth Forum for Sunday, May 13 “How the Food and Drug Administration Works: 100 Years of Consumer Protection.” Led by David Feigal, MD

David Feigal, MD, is a recent new member of HTLC.  Dr. Feigal has spent much of his professional career developing new medical treatments and working with the FDA.  Early in the HIV epidemic, he began a 12-year period at the FDA responsible first for AIDS drugs, and later for blood and vaccines and medical devices.  How is FDA organized and why does it have the authorities it has? From the first human experiments to products long on the market, FDA sets the standards. In this forum, Dr. Feigal will share some history, his experiences and answer questions about this 100 year old agency.
