Why should I stay at this hotel?

The Cincinnati Hilton Netherland Plaza Hotel continues to be our headquarter hotel for the Summit because of the high quality service, discounted rates and free amenities provided to our out-of-town guests.  The historic landmark hotel is centrally located in downtown Cincinnati.  Additionally, as the headquarter hotel, Xavier Health has arranged for shuttle service to transport participants from the Hilton to Xavier and back each day for participants who choose to register for this service.

What is the relationship between Xavier Health and the FDA?

Xavier Health aligns its work with the highest strategic priorities of the FDA. The relationship has been established by formally co-sponsoring our MedCon and PharmaLink Conferences.  Xavier University is also leading an Integrity of Supply initiative that cuts across Food, Drug and Device, and has formal involvement from FDA .

When/why was Xavier Health established?

Xavier Health was established in 2008 to carry directly into industry the mission of Xavier University which is “Making a Difference.” Xavier Health utilizes the neutral ground of the university to engage industry stakeholders in meaningful dialog on the most important industry challenges in an effort to identify solutions. Xavier Health challenges the status-quo and often shifts paradigms as the issues are addressed head-on.
