Alexander Neale Student Profile

Alexander Neale

I am originally from Manchester, England, but grew up in Snohomish, WA and graduated from the University of Washington in Seattle in 2012. I majored in Biochemistry, though not being completely sure what I wanted to do, I decided to minor in both History and Global Health, which meant that my undergraduate education was at least well-rounded. My global health minor exposed me to many different aspects of individual and population health, looking at the environment, culture, history, and epidemiology of health. One part of the puzzle that, in retrospect, I realize was missing is the component of animal health. Once I had decided to go to veterinary school, I was excited to learn that there was such a thing as a combined DVM/MPH program that unites both of my interests.
