The spring of 2015 is shaping up to be a busy time in the field of food and nutrition. Issues relating to food labeling, food safety, dietary guidelines, dietary supplements, child nutrition, and nutrition education in medical schools are being examined by the FDA, Congress, the Obama administration, and some states. For an in-depth discussion of what is being considered by the agency, the houses of Congress, and the President, please click here for ML Strategies' recent Update on Food Labeling, Food Safety, & Nutrition.
This week Mintz Levin also welcomed Joanne S. Hawana to its Health Law practice. Ms. Hawana represents clients in the food, drug, and biotechnology industries on issues ranging from prescription drug advertising to state licensing requirements for wholesale distribution and is well-positioned to work with clients on issues that may arise as a result of the matters currently being considered by the FDA, Congress, and President Obama.
