Local Policy Making for Animal Health, Public Health and Food Systems

This three-day program focuses on policy making at the state level. Participants will increase their understanding of the policy-making process and develop skills to engage in more effective participation. The program is built around a case study on raw milk for human consumption—a controversial topic in much of the U.S. The raw milk issue highlights tensions between individual choice and the role of government that has a statutuorial responsibility to assure safe food products.

The division of responsibilities between federal and state government for the prevention of zoonotic diseases will be explored. Participants will examine the development and implementation of state-level legislation and regulation, as well as the role of the judicial system in resolving disputes. The program will emphasize the diversity of perspectives influencing policy, including science, politics and beliefs.
