Jan 20, 2016 / Alumni News / Center for One Health Illinois

Capt. Erin Stein (Illinois DVM 2015, MPH expected 2016) is the officer in charge of the Veterinary Services facility in the U.S. Army’s Redstone Arsenal, Ala.

In a news article about her post, Capt. Stein was quoted as saying: “I have not had a stereotypical veterinary day, where I just see puppies and kittens – there’s no such thing as just seeing puppies and kittens. That’s what I love about veterinary medicine, is it’s so different. There are so many opportunities. In the civilian world, I could go anywhere, and in the Army, and the fact that it has such a huge food mission and public health mission, I can really do just about anything. I find that incredible.”
