Each year, about one in six Americans (48 million people) gets sick from foodborne diseases, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. About 128,000 are hospitalized and more than 3,000 die — all because of what they ate.
The Dining Grades website www.dininggrades.com seeks to prevent these experiences. It reviews hard data from public health inspection scores and converts it to a simple proprietary letter grade system. There are currently three million government food safety ratings compiled in the Dining Grades database, making it the nation’s new premier food safety database.
Dining Grades was created by board certified emergency physician, Dr. Harlan Stueven, after witnessing first-hand how poor food safety can wreak havoc on human health. It is his hope that Dining Grades will prevent serious illness and even save lives.
Dr. Stueven spent almost 30 years practicing medicine in Milwaukee. Dr. Stueven has chosen to launch Dining Grades in Chicago because of its renowned culinary scene and iconic food items. He is thrilled to be back where he spent so many years as a medical doctor and to attend the National Restaurant Association show in Chicago May 19 – 23, 2017.
Dr. Stueven is available for media interviews May 19 – 23, 2017 in Chicago.
He will be launching Dining Grades in select cities across the United States in the months of May and June.
