Rock Talk is FFAR's blog, where Executive Director Sally Rockey, Ph.D., loops you in on the latest from the Foundation. Dr. Rockey joined FFAR in September 2015 as the Foundation’s inaugural executive director.
Dr. Rockey spent nearly 20 years at the U.S. Department of Agriculture before transitioning to the National Institutes of Health, so leading FFAR is a “return to her roots.” Dr. Rockey’s breadth of research administration experience in both human health and food and agriculture inform her perspective on the strong link between agricultural production and nutrition.
