One way that FDA protects the public from harm and promotes public health is by making sure you get accurate, science-based information to use the medicines and foods you need to get and stay well.

To translate science-based regulatory decisions and information into public health gains, FDA is working to:

  • identify gaps in key areas of knowledge and in reaching diverse audiences
  • evaluate the effectiveness of FDA's Risk Communication, and
  • integrate knowledge from research and evaluation into practice.

We do this by conducting research, encouraging extramural research, and seeking expert advice.
