Kaylan Celestin is a Public Health Associate for the Centers for Disease Control. She is assigned to work at the National Environmental Health Association. Kaylan is working with Dr. Harlan Stueven, executive director and founder of Dining Safety Alliance. NEHA has a partnership with Dining Safety Alliance to study the variance in restaurant inspection scores. NEHA's partnering with Dining Safety Alliance to understand where and why there is variation in restaurant inspection scores across jurisdictions. There are partner organizations working in this topic area as well, including, City Health and University of Minnesota School of Public Health.
Disclaimer: NEHA recognizes that restaurant grading isn't necessarily utilized across the U.S. Yet. it is reported that Restaurants in the United States are regularly inspected by health departments, but few data exist regarding the effect of restaurant inspections on food safety (1). By studying the variance in restaurant inspection scores across jurisdictions, it will unveil the need for uniformity and awareness of the implications to the public's health.
