Update from the Food Safety & Nutrition (FSN) section

Looking back at 2015- it was a great  year for our section!  We sponsored a successful post-conference workshop on "Applying Behavioral and Experimental Economics to Food and Agri-Environmental Issues", co-organized 10 track sessions and one invited paper session. Thus, we have great plans for the 2016 Annual Meetings and we look forward to sharing more details about our track sessions and planned events with you over the coming months. You may already mark your calendars for the FSN Breakfast and Business meeting, which will take place on Sunday morning, July 31 at 9:30 AM. If you are not a member of our section (yet), we would like to encourage you to stop by this event. We are looking forward to seeing newcomers and regulars. Members in our section address a wide range of research topics in the areas of food safety, nutrition, and health economics.

The FSN membership is free for Graduate Students. For regular members, please make sure to add the FSN section membership when you renew your AAEA annual membership. If you signed up for the 3-year AAEA membership, you will need to renew your section memberships annually. 

At our Breakfast and Business meeting, we will announce the winner of our award for the Best Economics Paper in Food Safety & Nutrition. Make sure to apply- the deadline is still open until January 28! We will consider papers that address any topic in food safety or nutrition with a publication date of 2015.  Please send your nomination no later than January 28 to John Bovay, Please include a PDF copy of the article with your submission. 

We look forward to seeing you at the 2016 AAEA Annual Meeting in Boston, MA.

FSN Section Chair
