Our Speakers Bureau is comprised of individuals that have been impacted by a foodborne pathogen and are ready to share their powerful, life-changing stories with your team.
Their words will touch your and your colleagues lives forever.
Stop Foodborne Illness will coordinate identifying the appropriate speaker for your audience based on your preferences (e.g. a parent, older adult, survivor of childhood foodborne illness, male, or female). Other preference you might consider include: state or region in which your meeting is being held; type of food or specific pathogen associated with their illness; year of illness.
Though not all our speakers’ stories are featured on our website, we suggest you start by perusing the stories on our Honor Wall, which may help you hone in on what your team would identify with most strongly. You can search stories by name, state, pathogen/condition, and source. We are determined to find the best speaker for your event. Securing a speaker is, of course, always contingent upon the constituent’s schedule and availability.
With five full-time employees, Stop Foodborne Illness is a national nonprofit dedicated to supporting and engaging people directly impacted by foodborne illness and mobilizing them to help prevent illness and death by driving change through advocacy, collaboration, and innovation. If you would like to host a constituent speaker, we ask that you please consider the following expenses in support of our mission:
As the voice of people affected by foodborne illness, we collaborate with partners in academia, the food industry, and government to prevent foodborne illness. We advocate for effective food safety policy and facilitate culture change to increase food safety.
