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.”
