Public opinion of genetically modified food

What do Floridians think about genetically modified food?  Do Floridians know which foods contain genetically modified ingredients?  Do Floridians plan to purchase genetically modified foods in the future? 

Join this session to learn the answers to these questions and more about the public perceptions, attitudes and knowledge of genetically modified foods as Joy Rumble discusses the latest public opinion survey results. Alison Van Eenennaam will provide insights into the results based on her extensive experience working in the field of biotechnology and pose a few questions to generate discussion on how the results of this survey may be put to use.
