Lordwige Atis, a graduate research assistant at University of Georgia’s Center for Food Safety (CFS) has been selected as a Student Participation Award winner for 3-A Sanitary Standards Inc. (3-A SSI) Virtual Education Program 2021. In a pre-recorded video, Atis will present her dissertation research on the emerging parasite Cyclospora cayetanensis during the conference which will be held May 17-18.

The topic of the conference is sanitary and hygienic design, which Atis said she believes “is a crucial foundation for the successful execution of cleaning and disinfection plans for food processing and manufacturing.” She said that hygienic design plays a role in their Cyclospora research aims “as it is important for the control and reduction of this parasite from processing, cleaning and disinfecting.”
