Across the globe, millions of people are at an increased risk of illness or death due to poor quality control for medicines, dietary supplements, and foods. A strong set of standards and guidelines is needed to ensure their consistent quality.

The U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP) establishes quality standards and sets the bar for scientific rigor and technological progress, and they are looking for your assistance. Input from USP's Expert Volunteers is crucial for preserving public trust and maintaining these high standards because they are in a continuous process of review and revision based upon new evidence, emerging public health concerns, and public requests for revision.

During this free interactive broadcast, current Expert Volunteers and staff at USP will share their experiences and detail the opportunities it has provided them to contribute to innovation in healthcare while supporting safe medications and advancing their own professional development.
