9.1. Food Safety and Foodborne Illness
Who controls the response to foodborne disease outbreaks? What are some of the local, state, and federal agencies that help protect our food? How do they accomplish this task? Select an incident within the past couple of years that created a public health outbreak. My local Stat is Maryland

Give an example of why we need to be concerned with vector-borne diseases and what progress we are making (or not.)
