Rutgers Food Science IFT Virtual Alumni Association Event
On July 13, 2020, the Rutgers Food Science department and alumni committee will be holding a virtual event, which is normally held in conjunction with the IFT Annual Meeting and Food Expo.
Keynote speaker, Dr. Don Schaffner, extension specialist and distinguished professor in the Food Science department, has been featured in the national news quite a bit recently, discussing how COVID-19 is spread. His presentation, Covid-19 and the Food Supply, will focus on how the disease is transmitted and how it is affecting the supply chain. He will also recount his experiences working with the news media and Twitter.
Additionally, the event will include updates from the department chair, a current student perspective, and alumni and student awards presentations.
