Sara Flanagan wins 2016 K.C. Donnelly Externship Award

Sara Flanagan

Congratulations to Sara Flanagan on winning a 2016 K.C. Donnelly Externship Award! Flanagan is a doctoral student at the City University of New York and a research associate of the Columbia University Superfund Research Program (SRP) Community Engagement Core (CEC) under CEC PI Dr. Yan Zheng. The K.C. Donnelly Externship Award was established by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) SRP in memory of longtime SRP grantee Dr. K.C. Donnelly. It provides current SRP-funded graduate students and postdoctoral researchers with translational/transdisciplinary opportunities and experiences within other SRP-funded centers, government laboratories (EPA, ATSDR, NIEHS), or other agencies (state, local, Tribal). For her externship, Flanagan will work with Steve Spayd, Ph.D., at the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) and other researchers at the NJ Department of Health (NJDOH). Her current research is aimed at investigating motivators and barriers for water testing and treating arsenic-affected private wells used for drinking water. Through this externship, Flanagan will collaborate with NJDEP and NJDOH on community engagement and intervention strategies to increase private well arsenic testing and motivate well owners to reduce their risk of exposure.
