Two distinguished speakers, Paul Meixner and Ray Lotfi, provided wonderful insights on the importance of continued Risk Management beyond the launch of a new medical device and the importance of a dynamic FMEA. Lots of great folks came out and filled the house, bringing fresh ideas and great talking points! We had a full house, but we can always make room for you! We look forward to seeing you soon!
