National Food Safety Education Month: Handwashing For Life

Sep. 19, 2022

The Center for Foodborne Illness Research and Prevention (CFI) has assumed stewardship of Handwashing For Life Institute, a global organization devoted to advancing the science of hand hygiene with the purpose of reducing the incidence of foodborne illness and nosocomial (healthcare-associated) infections caused by poor hand hygiene around the world. 

Handwashing for Life 

Through the expertise of companies and the information of the CDC and universities, we are able to take their lab science and convert it into a practical applied science that takes into account the workforce and human behaviors with a focus on where food is served, stored, delivered, and prepared, to cultivate an operational cultural change of handwashing compliance
