University of Sydney
PhD student
Sandra Steele has worked for many years as a small animal practitioner in Sydney and has always had an interest in zoonoses education and prevention. As a result of mid-career frustration, she went back to uni and completed a Master of Public Health in 2014, part of which was a self-directed project looking at KAPs of veterinary clients with respect to zoonoses prevention. This taste of research has led to a PhD investigating KAPs of Australian GPs and veterinarians with respect to zoonoses and Emerging Infectious Diseases.
