Dr. Colette Friedenson, VMD, MPH received her veterinary doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania. After finishing vet school, she completed a fellowship in Emergency Medicine and has been working in general practice/emergency medicine since.
Prior to attending vet school, Dr. Friedenson received her Masters in Public Health in Epidemiology at Columbia University with a focus on zoonotic diseases (infectious agents spread from animals to humans). Her passion to protect the health of the human-animal bond led her to pursue veterinary school. Dr. Friedenson has published several articles in peer-reviewed research journals.
Dr. Friedenson lives down the road in South Philadelphia with her husband, two feisty little girls, and her incredibly lazy dog. In her spare time, she enjoys trying out new recipes and is taking up jogging.
