Bill Wenzel is the national Director of the Antibiotics Program. He is responsible for the development of marketplace and policy-oriented campaigns to stop the overuse of antibiotics in livestock and poultry production to ensure the continued effectiveness of antibiotics critical in the treatment of human disease and illness. He works with MASSPIRG's national affiliates, the U.S. PIRG and the U.S. PIRG Education Fund, to advance program goals and objectives.

Bill is a 1981 graduate of the Hamline University School of Law and has worked extensively on state and federal policy development and advocacy on a wide variety of agriculture, environmental and food issues in collaboration with farm, food, consumer and environmental groups and organizations. Many of the policy successes were the result of grassroots organizing efforts driven by broad collaborations of partners and allies.

He has also worked as Chief of Staff for two Wisconsin state Senators and served as Staff Director for the Wisconsin Senate Committee on Agriculture and Environmental Resources.
