This symposium will offer a comprehensive review and analysis of emerging foodborne issues, i.e., residues, resistance, and foodborne pathogens. Leaders from Public Health organizations, regulatory agencies, and medical practitioners will speak, and moderators will direct panel discussions focusing on criteria for prevention and resolution of these foodborne issues.

The symposium will be held on July 25, and a full agenda will appear in the next issue of the FDA Veterinarian.
