Environmental Health Specialists Network (EHS-Net)
EHS-Net (pronounced S-Net) is a collaborative forum of environmental health specialists whose mission is to improve environmental health practice. These specialists collaborate with epidemiologists and laboratorians to identify and prevent environmental factors contributing to foodborne and waterborne illness outbreaks.
Did you know that half of all foodborne illness outbreaks in the United States are associated with restaurants? EHS-Net did, and since 2002, EHS-Net has conducted 15 studies on restaurant food safety. Read EHS-Net-Improving Restaurant Food Safety One Study at a Time [PDF - 168 KB].
