The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is located in Silver Spring, Maryland – less than a ten minute drive from the Courtyard by Marriott Silver Spring Downtown hotel. The FDA is an agency within the Department of Health and Human Services that is responsible for protecting and promoting public health.
The United States FDA regulates and supervises food safety, tobacco products, dietary supplements, prescription and over-the-counter pharmaceutical drugs, vaccines, blood transfusions, medical devices, electromagnetic radiation emitting devices, veterinary products, and cosmetics to ensure the well being of the public.
