St. Louis to Host Public Health/Food Safety Summit

The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service is working with the Centers for Disease Control, the Food and Drug Administration, food safety experts, and public health communities to make critical improvements in public health and food safety. To that end, the three federal agencies will sponsor a two-day summit, May 15-16, "Better Communications, Better Public Health Outcomes: Strategies for Improved Coordination During Foodborne Outbreaks," at the Renaissance St. Louis Grand and Suites Hotel in St. Louis, Mo.

The summit will include a public meeting and an invitation-only simulation exercise. The steering committee will include members of the Council to Improve Foodborne Outbreak Response, a working group working to increase collaboration across the country to reduce the burden of foodborne illness in the United States. FSIS is also a member.
