Dr. Sander will discuss Pharmaceuticals in Water: A Global Perspective

More upcoming One Health events and previous recordings are also listed on our website here .
Dr. Will Sander will discuss pharmaceuticals in water from a global perspective. Pharmaceuticals do not just have intended effects as most get into the water system and can have unintended consequences on the environment, animals, and potentially people. As part of his time at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Will performed independent research looking at pharmaceutical occurrence around the world and policies and strategies from a global perspective.
Currently, Will is a veterinary specialist government contractor with Booz Allen Hamilton in Washington, DC supporting the Cooperative Biological Engagement Program (CBEP) within the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), part of the Department of Defense. His work centers on supporting CBEP to identify gaps in and bolster support for biosurveillance for human and animal health systems around the world. He also is a volunteer wildlife veterinarian at City Wildlife, Washington D.C.'s only wildlife rehabilitation center. Prior to Booz Allen Hamilton, he was an American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Science and Technology Policy Fellow at U.S. EPA, Office of Water/Office of Science and Technology looking at potential human health impacts from pharmaceuticals in water. Dr. Sander received his Bachelor of Arts in Biology at Colby College, his DVM from University of Wisconsin-Madison and his MPH in Global Health from Yale University. He's a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Preventive Medicine. Will directs the One Health Academy in Washington, D.C. and is the AVMA House of Delegates (HOD) alternate for DCVMA.
