PFSE Support Statement Shauna Henley

Shauna C. Henley, PhD, Family & Consumer Sciences Agent, University of Maryland Extension

As a member of the Board of Directors, for The Partnership for Food Safety Education, I help represent one of 13,000 “BAC Fighters.” As a professional I am a food safety and nutrition educator; I work across the food system from produce growers to home consumers. Every week is different, from teaching at health fairs, providing school lunchroom tastings, or leading a workshop. Finding science-based resources that reach across our diverse food system and audiences is important to stay relevant.

The Partnership has been a great organization-free print materials is important as an educator, and when I am referring other groups that may have a limited budget for food safety information. I think what sets the Partnership apart from other organizations is the ability to watch free webinars on a variety of topics, presented by experts in the field.

We are all living the human life cycle and we all have to eat. I look forward to continuing my small part supporting and advancing food safety education with The Partnership.
