Webinar: Keeping Babies & Toddlers Safe from Foodborne Illness
Wednesday, June 6 from 1 to 2 p.m. EDT
*CEUs available from ANFP, CDR and NEHA*

Young children are disproportionately affected by serious foodborne illness. According to the CDC, more than half of hospitalizations for foodborne illness in the U.S. are children. Young children do not have fully developed immune systems. They may be more likely to become ill, have serious complications and have a harder time getting well. During this free webinar our guest expert, Dr. Angela Fraser of Clemson University, will discuss the science behind five important tips for keeping babies and toddlers safe from foodborne illness. In addition, the
Partnership for Food Safety Education will highlight new resources to share with parents and caregivers.

2018 Behavior Change Webinar Series
for Food Safety Educators

Behavior change is not easy. If it was, we would all exercise regularly and eat healthy. And even when we know something might be the right thing to do, we don’t always do it. Learn how you can help change food safety behavior through this four-part webinar series presented by the Partnership for Food Safety Education in conjunction with the Social Marketing Association of North America. The first three webinars will walk through different behavior change disciplines. The last webinar will bring all the speakers together to talk about the similarities and differences between the different disciplines.

Using Community-Based Social Marketing to Change Behavior
*CEUs available from ANFP, CDR and NEHA*
We’re human. Our actions are influenced by peer pressure, personal motivations and values, convenience, cost — and the list goes on! By understanding the benefits a behavior might bring and any barriers that may stand in the way, social marketers can implement more informed and effective campaigns. A successful campaign “marketing mix” will include various messages, psychology-based communication tactics, and diverse channels and outreach strategies. On this first webinar of a four-part Behavior Change series, the Partnership for Food Safety Education, with guest Kelley Dennings
of Action Research, will bring you tools and strategies to advance food safety behavior change.

Using Behavioral Economics to Change Behavior
*CEUs available from ANFP, CDR and NEHA*
Behavioral economics studies the effects of psychological, social, cognitive and emotional factors on the decisions of individuals. Put simply: It helps us understand why people behave the way they do. The three main prevalent themes of behavioral economics are heuristics, framing and market inefficiencies. During this second webinar of a four-part Behavior Change series, the Partnership for Food Safety Education, with guest Richard Mathera of Common Cents Lab, will give you an overview of behavioral science and some of its food safety applications.

Using Design Thinking to Change Behavior
Wednesday, June 20 from 1 to 2 p.m. EDT
*CEUs available from ANFP, CDR and NEHA*
Design thinking is a method for practical yet creative problem solving. Put simply: It revolves around a deep interest in developing an understanding of the people for whom you’re designing products or services. This method uses tools and techniques like prototyping, ideation and user-centered design. During this third webinar of a four-part Behavior Change series, Alexandra Bornkessel of RTI International will give you an overview of design thinking and some of its food safety applications.
