Congratulations to Dr. Sara Flanagan who successfully defended her DrPH thesis, "Reducing Arsenic Exposure from Private Well Water in the United States: The Use, Effect, and Potential of Testing Requirements," at the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate School of Public Health & Health Policy on Monday, December 11, 2017. Dr. Flanagan, a co-investigator of the Columbia SRP Community Engagement and Research Translation Cores, completed her dissertation in Community, Society, & Health under the supervision of Columbia SRP Community Engagement Core PI Dr. Yan Zheng (Southern University of Science & Technology and Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University), Dr. Nicholas Freudenberg (CUNY School of Public Health), and Dr. Sherry Baron (CUNY Queens College). Dr. Flanagan earned a BA in Health & Societies and International Health from the University of Pennsylvania in 2009, and an MPH in Environmental Health Sciences and Global Health from Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health in 2011. She joined the Columbia SRP in September 2012 after working with Dr. Zheng in the Water & Environmental Sanitation Section of UNICEF-Bangladesh. Flanagan is the lead-author of a series of papers on private well water arsenic testing and treatment and was a 2016 recipient of the SRP KC Donnelly externship award, for which she collaborated with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and the New Jersey Department of Health on community engagement and intervention strategies to increase private well arsenic testing and motivate well owners to reduce their risk of exposure.
