Joseph Leiter NLM/MLA Lecture: The culture of Public Health and Food Safety
Tuesday, May 25, 2021
3:30 PM - 5:00 PM CT

Mitzi Baum joined the team at Stop Foodborne Illness (STOP) as the Chief Executive Office in May 2019. She is motivated by the mission to drive change through advocacy, collaboration, and innovation. During her tenure, STOP has implemented the Alliance to Stop Foodborne Illness program which is a collaboration with food industry companies and STOP's constituent advocates to improve internal food safety culture; STOP has conducted a literature review to support research focused on the early detection of foodborne illness; and STOP convenes two, multi-faceted working groups to support the FDA's New Era of Smarter Food Safety Blueprint.

Prior to beginning her tenure at STOP, Mitzi cultivated a 23-year career at Feeding America beginning as a network services representative rising to the senior level position of managing director of food safety. Prior to Feeding America, Mitzi managed restaurants for the Peasant Restaurant Company in Atlanta, Funky's Restaurants in Cincinnati, and Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises in Chicago.

Mitzi holds a Master of Science in Food Safety and certificate in Food Law from Michigan State University. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Bowling Green State University. She has earned certificates in Non-Profit Management from the University of Chicago, Food Safety Management from Cornell University and Quality Management from DePaul University.

The Joseph Leiter NLM/MLA Lectureship was established in 1983 to stimulate intellectual liaison between MLA and the National Library of Medicine (NLM). Lectures are chosen for their ability to discuss subjects related to biomedical communications. The lecture is presented every other year at NLM and in alternating years at the association's annual meeting. Annual meeting plenary session videos and slides are available online.
