Two more experts have come together for the first time to infer beyond what the guidance states. One speaker, who has spent a lifetime in claim substantiation using clinical trials, and another a legal beacon for advertising compliance, will dissect the guidance as well as share more compliance tips in this not-to-be missed webinar.
