An Interview with Food Policy Researcher Caitlin Boon
Sullivan, Megan
Science Teacher, v77 n2 p62-63 Feb 2010
From safety to nutrition, food policy researchers work to improve what we eat. They examine evidence found by experts in food science, consumer behavior, taste perception, nutrition, and many other related fields. Using this information, these scientists help the food industry, government, and public improve the quality, safety, and sustainability of our cuisine. At the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), food policy researcher Caitlin Boon convenes expert panels to advise Congress, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institutes of Health, and the wider public on major science and health issues. Combining a love of public policy with a passion for science, she helps consumers and policy makers make healthy dietary choices. (Contains 1 online resource.)
