Jason Klinowski Speaks at the 13th Annual Illinois Food Safety Symposium

On September 19, 2012, Jason Klinowski addressed the 240+ attendees of the 13th Annual Illinois Food Safety Symposium, which was held in Bloomington, IL.

During his presentation, Jason Klinowski addressed the issue of whether a health department could recoup the costs it incurs responding to a foodborne illness outbreak in light of the department’s statutory duty to respond and to protect the public health.  The presentation looked at both the legal theories for recovery and the practical considerations (pros & cons) of such litigation.

This event was co-sponsored by the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Illinois Public Health Association.  A special thanks goes out to Kevin Dreesman of the Illinois Department of Health for organizing this event and for inviting me to address its attendees.
