Dr. Lisa Williams Receives National Award

The Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry presented the SETAC North America 2014 Government Service Award to Dr. Lisa Williams, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, at their annual meeting, held in Vancouver, British Columbia, in November. Created in 1997, this award is intended to recognize exemplary dedication and service by a scientist or scientific organization toward promoting the collective application of environmental toxicology and chemistry to risk assessment in a government function; promoting the implementation of programs that can be used for the development of ecologically sound and acceptable practices and principles; and providing a forum for communication among professionals in government, business, academia, and other segments of society involved in the protection of the welfare of the general public. Lisa’s colleagues in academia and government in the United States and Canada contributed to the nomination.
