I just returned from the annual Conference of the Council for Responsible Nutrition at the Terranea Resort in Racho Palos Verdes, California.  Speakers on the agenda included a variety of supplement industry heavyweights and important government regulators.

I will be blogging about several of the presentations including speeches by Joshua Sharfstein, Principal Deputy Commissioner of FDA, and David Vladek, Director of the FTC Bureau of Consumer Protection.

I will also be providing my reflections on several CRN panel discussions focusing on a range of subjects including the 15th Anniversary of DSHEA, CRN programs like “Life…supplemented“, and other supplement insider events.

This was my second year attending The CRN Conference and it continues to impress me as an excellent event.  I made several new connections, and some are reading this blog for the first time so welcome!
