Popovic continues, "Wachsmuth has made sure that younger generations of scientists also focused on linking science to practice." She has been a doctoral research advisor through adjunct faculty appointments at the University of North Carolina School of Public Health, Emory University, and Georgia State University, and has mentored postdoctoral students through the National Research Council, WHO, Fogarty, and Fulbright Fellowship Programs. During her time at the CDC in the early 1990s, she coordinated the summer research program for students enrolled in the University of Tuskegee Veterinary School and Morehouse University Medical School.

Since leaving the Federal Government in 2002, Wachsmuth has been an independent consultant, primarily to the Food and Agriculture Organization in Rome and the WHO in Geneva. "Wachsmuth has provided food safety leadership internationally by bridging her strong scientific background with her understanding of how public and private institutions work in the food safety arena," says Michael Taylor, FDA. From 2004 through 2009, she was Chief Technical Advisor for the FAO/WHO project to improve food safety management in Vietnam, Lao PDR, and Cambodia (incorporating available microbial and foodborne disease data into risk management decision-making). She drafted international guidelines for food safety emergency response planning at the national level and helped implement planning in Vietnam and Lao PDR. Additionally, she coordinated three international expert workshops for FAO/WHO to reduce the global risk of bacterial contamination in powdered infant formulae.

"She is really one of a kind in her ability to work across disciplinary lines, which is why she has been such a positive force in all of the arenas in which she has worked," explains Taylor. Wachsmuth has served the field in many capacities, both nationall
