Dear PDG members,
Please join me on congratulating Dr. Ellen Shumaker on being elected as our new Vice Chair for Education PDG! Dr. Shumaker directs the outreach and extension activities for the Safe Plates program, NC State Extension’s evidence-based food safety programming and resources for retail, community and home-based food safety. She designs, implements, and evaluates a variety of food safety messages throughout the farm to fork continuum. She also develops and delivers food safety programs for food retailers, farmers’ markets, consumers, and other community groups.
With Drs. Shauna Henley and Ellen Shumaker's leadership, Education PDG will continue to serve our members in the upcoming years!
