Seth Foldy '77, occupation: Public Health Physician

Seth Foldy

HumBio was just what I wanted to do: biology, social science and policy. It broadened my perspectives and deepened my understanding. Not sure why knuckle-walking sticks in my head, but I've seen plenty of it in politics since! I have enjoyed many years in community-oriented family practice in low-income communities, environmental health, running a city and state health department, fighting epidemics (monkeypox from prarie dogs was the weirdest) and now work at CDC connecting medicine and public health through the electronic health record. Can't think of a part of it that wasn't HumBio (but wished I'd spent more time with the garage computer crowd back then...)
