Dr. Barbara Kowalcyk and her team are hosting a World Food Safety Day (WFSD) event on June 6 from 1 – 6:30 pm. 

WFSD was established by the World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations to raise awareness about food safety and inspire action to prevent foodborne disease. The theme for this year’s WFSD event is Anticipating Food Safety Events: Plan, Prepare, Act. The goal of this event is to promote the role everyone plays in food safety and discuss the importance of being prepared for food safety events like outbreaks, recalls, natural disasters and intentional food contamination events. The agenda includes a keynote session with leadership from government agencies involved in food safety, speed talks, and panel discussions on important food safety topics. The day will end with a networking event.


Registration for the event is free and will be open to the public, although space is limited. Please note, there are separate tickets for GW affiliated faculty, staff and students and the general public so please register for the appropriate ticket. If you have questions do not hesitate to reach out to Janet Buffer
