mailoutposter5 250x386The S3 Symposium takes a big picture view of food and focuses on three key principles: safety, security, and sustainability (S3).  As the world population grows, there is increasing pressure on our food supply.  Feeding people in a way that is safe, healthy, accessible, and protects the planet is becoming a greater challenge.  The S3 looks at issues that are critical for long term public and environmental health.  The symposium is a collaborative forum made up of environmental health professionals, regulators, food producers, academia and others interested in enhancing their understanding of the links between agricultural production, food processing, food security, food safety, and environmental sustainability.

Inspired by the ever changing face of food production, food sources, food science and regulation, the theme for 2015 is “Adapting Food Safety in Today’s World”. The symposium will include a diverse group of speakers in a plenary session, as well as smaller break-out sessions.  Off-site training will be a part of the pre-conference and include an opportunity for a farm tour or a tour of the latest developments in agricultural and environmental technology at UC Davis. 

The symposium welcomes environmental health and public health professionals, agricultural industry, political delegates, academia, food industry representatives, restaurateurs, and students.  Continuing education contact hours for California REHS will be available during the symposium.  The California Conference of Directors of Environmental Health and the Sacramento County Environmental Management Department are sponsors of the 2015 S3 Symposium and encourage you to save the date for this exciting event!
