Rebecca Fein ’99
Rebecca Fein ’99 reports that following in the noble tradition of her ancestors, Dr. John Otte (1883) and Harriet Boot (1934) de Velder, she has completed her doctorate of health science (DHSc.) with an emphasis in global health at A.T. Still University. Her research focused on how geographic information systems and other technology can be used to improve vaccine-preventable disease management in refugee populations. She seeks to honor Dr. Otte’s and de Velder’s commitment to improving health care for all as medical missionaries, and de Velder’s refugee journey with the Flying Tigers and three small children while pregnant with her father (John R. de Velder ’65).
