Food@MSU and MSU's Online Food Safety Program invite you to attend an Our Table discussion on food safety on May 22 at the University Club of Michigan State University, 3435 Forest Rd, Lansing, MI 48910Appetizers will be served beginning at 5:30 p.m., with the panel taking place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the U-Club's Heritage Room. 

This event is free and open to the public.

Our Table is a series of roundtable discussions in which MSU brings together community members and various food experts — scientists, agricultural producers, health professionals, professors, authors and more — to talk about food-related issues. The discussions are a cornerstone of Food@MSU, a campuswide initiative led by the colleges of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Arts and Letters, and Communication Arts and Sciences. Food@MSU is designed to help consumers make more informed decisions about food and its impacts on human health, society, and the planet.

Patricia Griffin, M.D., chief of the enteric diseases and epidemiology branch of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is among the panelists. “Sharing what we know about food safety – and also what we don’t know – helps drive the actions that make food safer for everyone,” Griffin said.

Other panelists include:

Sheril Kirshenbaum, a science communicator and author of “Unscientific America: How Scientific Illiteracy Threatens Our Future,” is the moderator for Our Table conversations.
