Abstract Submission

Together: A Food Safe America, the Consumer Food Safety Education Conference on December 4-5, 2014 in Arlington, VA, will bring together food safety educators from all sectors and all levels to share strategies and tactics that promote more effective consumer food safety behaviors. The Conference Planning Committee invites you to apply to be a breakout or panel session presenter (75-minute sessions) or a poster presenter at the conference.

The conference will focus on four primary themes:

Abstracts will be accepted on all of these themes, as well as on other topics that directly address the Food Safety Education goals of Healthy People 2020.

A breakout session can be a single presenter; two or more presenters who are joined together by the organizers to present pieces of a larger topic; or a panel of presenters that cover a unified topic. If you want to request a specific length for your breakout presentation, please indicate in your description. Each breakout session will conclude with a period of 15 minutes for Q&A from the audience.

(Additional information on the themes may be found under the Programs tab on this website.)

Don’t miss this chance to share your expertise and inspire an audience of nearly 500 educators and researchers to make changes that benefit the health of consumers.
