The FDA has postponed the first session in its Vision 2006 consumer listening tour to give FDA Commissioner Lester Crawford and other top FDA officials more time to concentrate on relief efforts in connection with Hurricane Katrina, an FDA spokeswoman told MM&M today. 
The first stop on the question and answer tour to hear consumer concerns was scheduled to take place in Miami on Tuesday, Sept. 13. Rescheduling details were not made available, as Hurricane relief efforts are a "priority" right now, the spokeswoman added.
The Vision 2006 sessions on Nov. 2 in Boston and a Nov. 30 in Phoenix were scheduled to proceed as planned, the agency said.
The 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. sessions will include at least 150 consumers, with time devoted to such issues as drug advertising, conflicts of interest among federal advisers and drug safety.
