As a result of the impact of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and the large number of pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturing facilities on the island, Dr. Gottlieb had to travel to Puerto Rico on Sept. 29 (the originally scheduled date for this Luncheon) to meet with industry executives and government officials to assess the impact the hurricane had on the U.S. drug supply.

Lunch will be served in the club's Ballroom at 12:30 p.m., with remarks beginning at 1 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session ending at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $25 for National Press Club members (members may purchase two tickets at this rate) and $39 for all other non-member tickets. Please click here to purchase tickets to the luncheon.

Dr. Gottlieb was sworn in as the 23rd FDA commissioner on May 10th. Since taking office, he has focused on increasing efficiency and consistency in the review process, addressing the opioid crisis, growing competition as a mechanism to make pharmaceuticals more accessible, and addressing the chronic staff shortage.

For all ticketing-related questions, please email reservations@press.org or call (202) 662-7501. Tickets must be paid for at the time of purchase. To submit a question for the speaker in advance, put FDA in the subject line and email to president@press.org. The deadline for submitting questions in advance is 10 a.m. on the day of the luncheon.
