Linking Food Safety with Health and Nutrition: Insights and Priorities

Wednesday, February 24, 2021 at 9:00am to 10:30am

Virtual Event

The World Health Organization estimates that, each year, consumption of contaminated food causes one in ten people to fall ill. In addition to causing acute disease and death, foodborne illnesses can result in long-term health consequences and have a higher impact on vulnerable populations, including pregnant women, children, the sick, and the elderly. The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Safety leverages research and expertise in food safety, food production, nutrition, and international development to identify and mitigate the root causes of foodborne illness within food systems. Join us as the panelists in the third installment in our webinar series share their insights and answer your questions on food safety and breaking cycles of disease and malnutrition.

Moderator: Dr. Haley Oliver, Food Safety Innovation Lab Director, Purdue University
