International QA Compliance Manager
Adam will be one of the distinguished presenters at the 5th Semi-Annual Medical Device Labeling and Packaging Conference.
How many years have you been in the industry?
For the past 6 years I have worked in medical device and prior to that I worked for 8 years in biotech.
Why do you believe that the Device & Diagnostic Labeling Conference is important?
Worldwide, labeling is changing so quickly it is virtually impossible to stay ahead of all these changes as an individual or even as a company. The Labeling Conference provides a forum of like-minded individuals representing many medical device companies, experiencing the same or similar challenges, to present and discuss labeling strategies that will hopefully provide tools or direction to address the ever changing market requirements.
What do you hope attendees will take away from your presentation, workshop or panel discussion?
Like a lot of people, I always took labeling for granted, the concept seemed so simple to me. Unfortunately, the reality of labeling and the execution of labeling strategies internationally has the potential to be infinitely complex. But, by clearly establishing your labeling strategy you can then potentially re-approach the “simple” labeling concept. I hope by sharing my strategy, attendees will gain insight into how they can direct or re-direct their labeling efforts in international markets.
What inspires your passion and/or interest for medical product labeling and/or healthcare?
Working in medical device means you are impacting the health and wellness of those around you. Whether you are working in R&D, Operations, Finance, HR, or QA/RA, you are aiding in getting your products to market and getting your product to patients. Labeling is the cornerstone of the medical device product. It provides the foundation for market entry and product use, enabling patient or customer care. Knowing that what you are working on has a direct societal impact is very motivating to me.
