Linking Food Safety with Health and Nutrition: Insights and Priorities

Date: February 24, 2021
Time: 9-10:30 a.m. EST (UTC-5)
Platform: Zoom webinar

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, FSIL Director, Purdue University

Speakers:
Shanda Steimer, Director, USAID Center for Nutrition
Patrick Webb, Director of the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition, Tufts University
Prabhu Pingali, Founding Director of the Tata-Cornell Institute, Cornell University
Jessie Vipham, Assistant Professor of Animal Sciences and Industry, Kansas State University

Webinar: Food Safety and One Health: Approaches to Reducing Foodborne Pathogens and Zoonotic Diseases

Date: November 19, 2020
Platform: Zoom Webinar

Human and animal health are tightly linked: Foodborne pathogens and parasites are persistent public health hazards, and an estimated 60% of human pathogens and 75% of emerging diseases originate from animals according to a recent report by the UN Environment Programme and ILRI. The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Safety leverages research and expertise in food safety, food production, nutrition, and international development to identify the root causes of foodborne illness within supply chains. The second installment in our webinar series explores how a One Health approach to food safety in meat production can reduce, manage, and mitigate risks to animal and human health.

Webinar: Harnessing Food Safety to Address Global Food Security

Date: October 28, 2020
Platform: Zoom Webinar

Without food safety, there is no food security. Strengthening local capacity in food safety has untapped potential to break cycles of disease and malnutrition, support well-nourished communities, and generate economic opportunity through increased access to export markets. The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Safety leverages research and expertise in food safety, food production, nutrition, and international development to identify the root causes of foodborne illness within supply chains. The first webinar in this series will explore how data-driven food safety policy and practices can transform food systems and promote global food security.
