Food Safety Education for Everyone: Building Inclusive Messages
The U.S. population is continuing to grow more racially and ethnically diverse. Data from the 2020 U.S. Census indicates that the diversity index — the chance that two people chosen at random will be from different racial and ethnic groups — has increased from 54.9% in 2010 to 61.1% in 2020.
With this increase in diversity, there is a need to equip health, nutrition, and food safety educators with tools and resources to effectively interact, work with, and communicate with people of various cultural backgrounds, a skill commonly referred to as cultural competence.
During this webinar, experts will discuss incorporating inclusive messaging and positive messaging into food safety educational materials. Attendees will also learn how to recognize cultural biases in food safety and how to use harm-reduction strategies in risk communications.
Speakers will include Dr. Barbara Chamberlin of New Mexico State University, Dr. Kelsey Schwarz and Sara Bresee, MPH of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Dr. James Rogers of Consumer Reports.
CEUs are available from ANFP, CDR, NCHEC, and NEHA.
