Charge 1 Recommendation: We recommend that this charge continue and that APHL and AFDO continue to strengthen the relationships between these two associations.

slide4

Charge 2: Review Topical Index and identify possible scientific articles that could be imported into this portal.

  • Discussion: This charge has not been addressed during 2012. The Committee needs additional information on the goals and deliverables related to this charge. We suggest that this charge could be met through tutorials and/or educational material on how to conduct a literature search/review. There are several excellent searchable databases available that would provide up to date information on scientific articles by subject.
  • Recommendation: We recommend that this charge continue.
slide5

Charge 3: Identify possible Food Laboratory contact information or links that would be useful additions to the Directory of State & Local Officials.

  • Discussion: Dan Rice and Yvonne Salfinger are working with the APHL and AFDO to achieve this goal. In addition Dan Rice is the lead person for the AFDO Registry Workgroup that is charged with developing a database of subject matter experts. The membership of the Registry Workgroup is being developed at this time.
  • Recommendation: We recommend that this charge continue.

Charge 4: Research and review the public health significance of betel nuts described in a 2012 proposed resolution from CASA and provide direction to the Board on an appropriate response.

  • Discussion: This charge was addressed by a revised resolution being sent to CASA by Joe Corby based on work of a Fellow.
  • Recommendation: Completed. Will be posted at this year’s conference and voted on during the Wednesday Business meeting
