2022 Healthy People 2030 Summit Overview
Jan 24th, 2022 by Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO)
We interviewed Healthy People co-chair Ernest Jullian about the Summit and it's progress.
After a two-year hiatus due to Covid-19, more than 160 people focused on food safety continued to move the needle on actionable steps to decrease foodborne illness. For two and half days last week, meeting both in person and virtually, key subject matter experts and leaders continued the conversation while updating 2020 recommendations and developing new ones.
Encouraging people to think outside of the box when it comes to changes needed to reduce foodborne illness continues to inspire change. Attendees from all facets of food safety from academia to state program managers, the focus was on the collaboration and development of a reduction action plan that brings together all partners who have a stake in this priority.
