“Foodborne Diseases: Better Prevention with Better Public Health Information”

Thursday, December 17, 2009

On Thursday, December 17, CDC's National Center for Zoonotic, Vector-Borne, and Enteric Diseases (NCZVED) presented the fourth Public Grand Rounds session entitled “Foodborne Diseases: Better Prevention with Better Public Health Information." This session examined how current food industry trends such as the centralization of food processing and reliance on imported foods are not only affecting the health and confidence of the general public, but are also placing a burden on understaffed state and local health departments who are currently conducting 90% of all foodborne outbreak investigations. This session addressed these challenges, as well as discussed interventions and policies that will reduce food-borne related illness and death in the United States and abroad.

Robert Tauxe, MD, MPH, Acting Senior Advisor, National Center for Zoonotic, Vector-Borne, and Enteric Diseases (NCZVED)
