12th Annual Sentinel Initiative Public Workshop


12th Annual Sentinel Initiative Public Workshop

October 14, 2020 — 1:00PM–4:00PM


The Sentinel Initiative, an active medical product surveillance system, was established in response to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Amendments Act of 2007 and has become one of the Agency’s premier evidence generation platforms. The 12th Annual Sentinel Initiative Public Workshop is being convened on October 14, 2020 by the Robert J. Margolis, MD, Center for Health Policy under a cooperative agreement with the FDA. The workshop will be held as a virtual webinar and provides an opportunity to discuss recent achievements and developments and engage with the broader community of patients, consumers, and scientific stakeholders.

This year’s meeting will feature a keynote by FDA’s Dr. Patrizia Cavazzoni as well as presentations from numerous expert panelists who will provide updates on key Sentinel Initiative developments, milestones, and strategic aims. Discussion will also consider recent activities and applications of the Sentinel Initiative as part of the U.S. FDA’s efforts to protect and promote public health during the COVID-19 pandemic.


The agenda, speaker bios, and meeting materials will be available on the Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy event page.
