CMG to Address the Emerging Topic of Genomics at Expo West and NEXT Innovation Summit
The Dietary Supplements division of Collins, McDonald & Gann will be attending Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, California this week – the world’s largest trade show for the natural, organic and healthy living market. In addition to attending Expo West, they will also be joining Dr. Doug Kalman for a panel presentation on the topic of Genomics at the NEXT Innovation Summit, an industry conference which is co-located with Expo West.
The presentation will take place at the Anaheim Hilton on Thursday, March 6th at 10:30 a.m. Rick, Alan and Doug will be speaking on genomics and nutrigenomics in a presentation entitled “The Science and Legalities of Genomics in Today’s Marketplace.” Genomics/nutrigenomics is an emerging area of science, and the presentation will address both the science behind genomics, and the legal issues involved – including federal regulation of genetic testing and direct-to-consumer genetic tests, such as the ones produced by the company 23andMe. Case studies, including the recent FDA actions taken against 23andMe, will also be presented – providing some important information for anyone thinking about expanding into this emerging area.
We are excited to be joining industry leaders gathering for both Expo West and the NEXT Innovation Summit, and looking forward to joining Doug Kalman for this important presentation/roundtable discussion on one of the hottest topics in the industry. Check our SupplementCounsel website and our Facebook page for further updates on the legalities surrounding genomics in the months ahead – and if you are in Anaheim for Expo West, please seek us out to say hello!
