The Leadership Program


Kris Dewberry

DewberryBackground:

I was raised in a suburb of central New Jersey. I went to the University of Delaware for my undergraduate education where I received a B.S in Pre-veterinary Medicine and Biosciences. During my undergraduate career I began exploring my interests in research by conducting projects on Marek's Disease Virus, Emergency Mass Mortality Composting, and Immunology.

Interests:

Outside of Veterinary medicine, my interests include participating in charitable organizations, development of entrepreneur skills, and reading non-fiction. I thoroughly enjoy cooking, and use it as a stress reliever from the demands of the DVM curriculum.

Career Goal:

In the future, I hope to have a career in the public health sector working for a federal agency. My experience during the Leadership Program, cemented my interest in this field and convinced me to pursue my MPH concurrently with my DVM. I hope to work in a position that will let me facilitate a better understanding of one health and serve as a resource on emerging zoonotic diseases.
