In her second deployment to Iraq in 2011, Lyndhurst native Aysu Cesmebasi ran a dining hall that fed 12,000 Army and Air Force personnel twice a day, as the U.S. prepared to shut Joint Base Balad, its largest in that war-torn country.

The local contractor handling meals at the base had been let go, so Cesmebasi, a food advisor, oversaw a staff of 75 soldiers and airmen, ensuring they adhered to sanitary regulations.

“My biggest concern was safety,” recalled Cesmebasi, a 2008 graduate of the Environment and Public Health (EPH) course run by Rutgers' Office of Continuing Professional Education (OCPE). “I could not have a food-borne illness outbreak since it could impair our mission at a critical time.”
