This website is really going to help me stay connected to the Division activities! 

How can I help you? I am a Quality and Regulatory leader working in a medical device company with offices in Chicago and Harrisburg PA. Hope to hear from you!
Hello. Keith Councell here.

I am a Principle Quality Engineer for an over-the-counter oral care company in Grand Rapids, MI.

What areas are you focused on? 
From the ASQ point-of-view, I am passionate about the CBA Exam (Certified Biomedical Auditor)

What topics or training content can the Biomedical Division myASQ community provide input on?
I am all way out looking for the things that I don’t know that I don’t know. The world is an amazing place full of people with different ideas and approaches that I can learn from. I am really looking forward to what this myASQ community can become.
I am Edwin Bills, ASQ Fellow, thanks to many friends in the Biomedical Division.  Currently consulting and participating in the development of standards, including the new edition of ISO 14971 and its companion guidance ISO TR 24971, as well as an AAMI guidance on Combination Products Risk Management and others.  My passion is health products risk management with over 20 years in the subject teaching as well as actively participating as a Director of Risk Management at a medical device company.  I do have 31 years in the device industry.

Glad to see this site active.  Noticed the focus on medical devices, I hope we are going to discuss combination products and IVDs as well, as these are an important part of many companies activities.

Hello. My name is Dorian Pearson-Shaver. I am a Quality Specialist for a medical device company in Orlando, FL. I am helping my company build and 21 CFR 820 compliant quality system and in the next year or two I would like to become a CBA. 
My name is Donna Campbell, I'm currently an assessor for BSI and a long time member of the Biomedical Division.
I look forward to the new changes.
Hello everyone.
I'm from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
I work as a QA manager in an IVD company. I've been working for 20 years in MD industry focusing on Quality Management System following the standards (and their previous versions) ISO 9001:2015, ISO 13485: 2016, MDR (CE marking) and 21 CFR 820. During these 20 years, I've been working with these standards in MD equipments, Implants and now in IVD.
The topics I'm really interested in are the international regulatory changes coming initially from the CE, the new ISO 13485:2016, their linked standards and their practical application in industry.
Now, I'm focusing on a master course in Quality Engineering that helps me to prepare myself to the CQE exam.
After finishing this course, I would like to help to grow this division in latinoamerica area.
My name is Andrea; I'm a second career Document Specialist working my way up to being a Quality Specialist.  

Right now Quality is such an afterthought at my R&D Medical Device startup that I feel like I'm in the back alley with a trenchcoat and dark glasses, offering FDA Guidances to the Engineers.  "Psst, buddy . . . Want a *software guidance*?"  

So, medical devices, software, documentation
