Consistent with UC Davis policy, faculty are expected to disclose:

  1. Any significant financial interests or other relationships with manufacturers of commercial products and/or providers of commercial services discussed in their presentations, and
  2. Any "off-label" uses for pharmaceutical and medical device products discussed in their presentations. The intent of this disclosure is not to prevent speakers with significant financial or other relationships from making presentations, but rather to provide listeners with information on which they can make their own judgements.
