Previously, as a Colonel in the United States Army, Dr. Grabenstein directed the Military Vaccine Agency where he oversaw the Defense Department immunization programs for 9 million troops, retirees, and family members spread across 4 continents and dozens of ships at sea.
Dr. Grabenstein received his pharmacy degree from Duquesne University in 1980, a master’s degree in education from Boston University in 1988, and his doctorate in epidemiology at the University of North Carolina in 1999.
