Ware: Learning about pollution

Ware Academy eighth graders recently participated in a lecture and analyzation of pharmaceutical pollution facilitated by Dr. George DeVries of Urbanna. As preparation for the eighth grade’s Capstone Project, students were tasked with examining the various sources of pharmaceuticals found in drinking water. Students were also tasked with designing a protocol to ensure that drinking water is free of pollutants. Dr. DeVries is a health research scientist with over 40 years of service. He received his BS in zoology from Wheaton College and his doctorate from the University of Illinois School of Medicine. His post doctoral work in neuroscience was completed at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine. Dr. DeVries received many awards and honors throughout his career as a professor and research scientist.
