Chair: Anne-Fleur Brand
Dear members of the EWDA Student Chapter,
In March 2015 I had the privilege of attending the 6th EWDA Student Workshop. This was my first encounter with the EWDA, an organisation with a lot of potential when it comes to interdisciplinary collaboration. I see it as a great opportunity to explore these opportunities whilst organising the 7th Student Workshop in 2017.
I have a background in Veterinary Medicine and Toxicology & Environmental Health that I study at Utrecht University in the Netherlands.
Hopefully, the combination of these two degrees will improve my understanding of the different factors that influence disease emergence and will allow me to look at health issues from a broader perspective.
I pursue a career that allows me to connect people from different disciplines and contribute to bridging the gap between science and policy.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you wish to learn more about the EWDA Student Chapter or would like to become involved.
