Advisory Council

Purpose

The JIFSAN Advisory Council advises the Director on current issues in areas pertinent to the Institute's interests and responsibilities. These include issues in food safety, nutrition, and related areas. It also advises on areas in which potential JIFSAN research, education, or outreach programs are needed or for which current programs need modification. The Advisory Council meets twice a year and members are in contact with the Director throughout the year.
