Rebekah Meyer Student Profile

Rebekah Meyer

I grew up in Belmont, MA, and now live in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston. I earned my AB in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology from Harvard College, and also spent a year at The Farm School learning small-scale sustainable agriculture. The DVM/MPH program has offered many opportunities to connect veterinary medicine to other branches of the health professions, and I really enjoy the chance to think about the intersection of animal and human health. Most recently I spent the summer in the Division of Epidemiology and Immunization at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, and learned so much about the practice of public health by participating in meetings, conference calls, and hallway conversations. My goal for the program is to develop a broad, basic understanding of public health so that I will be well-prepared to work in the field in more depth if I have the opportunity to do so in the future.
