A breakfast event was hosted by the chapter during the SQA annual meeting in Memphis, TN (April). Elvis was spotted enjoying peanut butter and banana sandwiches… he ate several!

Day 2 included SQA Specialty Sections Updates for the Clinical Specialty Section, and the Program Planning Committee. Other sessions presented were Developing and Deploying a GXP Electronic Global Audit Management System, A Case Study for CRO-Sponsor Interactions and a Clinical QA Communication lesson.
