  • Provide high impact and innovative continuing education on food safety and the role of public health.
  • Implement outreach programs that translate research knowledge into improvements in food safety and public health.
  • Develop and support integrative research that aims to improve food safety and reduce the impact of foodborne disease at a regional and national level.
