Universities from around the world came together on April 5 this year in Wageningen, Netherlands to plot a course for food safety at the “2018 Global One Health Research, The Future” international symposium.
Davis Warriors was the name of the team. Seven teammates worked together on a learning activity called, “Good Guys vs. Bad Bugs,” in which they explored the importance of sanitary practices on a dairy farm to protect animals from the disease-causing bacteria E. coli.
An intentional release, or natural occurrence of diseases associated with pathogens, or biological and chemical toxins, can adversely impact the safety and security of plant and animal foods. WIFSS partners with multiple academic institutions and government agencies to address the safety and security of food for people and animals.

Inside every fresh egg, every glass of milk, and every head of lettuce is a network of research, ideas, and hard work. Veterinary Medicine Extension at UC Davis is part of that network, linking basic and applied scientific research with people and communities in California.
Students learn about connection between people, animals, and the environment, and the role they play in food safety in all areas of the food chain from the soil to the consumer at One Health Conference.
