The man who will be Deputy Under Secretary for Food Safety at USDA brings with him years of experience in health, nutrition and epidemiology, food safety, and public policy in both government and academia. Those are the credits cited by Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack when he announced that Jerold Mande will fill the position overseeing food safety at USDA.

Most recently Mande served as Associate Director for Public Policy at the Yale Cancer Center. There he developed a national model to increase support for cancer prevention and control, including diet, exercise and obesity. He also initiated and helped manage the cancer center disparities program to improve cancer control and care in underserved populations.

Prior to that Mande served on the White House staff as a health policy adviser where he helped lead key food safety, tobacco control and cancer initiatives including expansion of FoodNet and PulseNet. He was also Deputy Assistant Secretary for Occupational Health at the U.S. Department of Labor.
