The National Association of County and City Health Officials and the National Environmental Health Association, with the support of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is pleased to host an online sharing session at the intersection of climate change and food safety. The sharing session will feature presentations from Dr. Joan Brunkard from the CDC and John Mark Carter from United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA). These presentations will provide examples of the science behind climate change, its impact on the environment and our health, and what this means for food safety and food security.

This sharing session will explain some of the recent expansion of climate change work at the federal level and help provide context on how current food safety issues experienced at the local level are linked to climate change. Participants are encouraged to share their own challenges, successes, and to ask questions during the discussion/Q&A portion of the presentation.

Speakers


After undergraduate studies at Washington University in St Louis, John Mark Carter earned his PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of Florida in 1987. He then post-docked at Walter Reed and Ft Detrick, doing vaccine discovery, and serving as a Company Commander during Operation Desert Storm. Afterward, he founded and worked in several biotech start-ups. In 2004 Mark went to work for USDA as a Research Leader in the Agriculture Research Service, where his Foodborne Contaminants Research unit developed methods for detection of pathogens and toxins in food, especially Select Agents such as ricin, botulinum toxin, and BSE (“mad cow”). Under his leadership the research unit roughly doubled in size. After 12 years in ARS, he moved to the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service, where he served for 3 years a Senior Microbiologist. In June of 2020, he moved to the USDA National Institutes for Food and Agriculture, where he now serves as National Program Leader for Food Safety.

Dr. Joan Brunkard is an epidemiologist in the Division of Foodborne, Waterborne and Environmental Diseases at CDC. Her research interests include the ecology of infectious diseases, climate change science and policy, and the epidemiology of waterborne diseases. Dr. Brunkard serves as a subject matter expert on climate and water for CDC and has spent the last 10 years working on cholera elimination and projects targeting improvements in water and sanitation access in central and East Africa.
