Pharmaceuticals and the Environment

On Tuesday, June 14, 2005 NEWMOA, the Lowell Center for Sustainable Production, and the U.S. EPA New England hosted a policy update on pharmaceuticals and the environment for Massachusetts environmental and public health professionals.

Recent research has been conducted regarding the presence of pharmaceutical wastes and waste products in the environment, specifically in wastewater. This half day seminar provided a comprehensive overview of these developments. The first half of the seminar dealt with the emerging issues and the second half focused on how to better share information and work cooperatively across state agencies and universities.
