Combining biology, business
Published: April 04, 2019
Environmental Health Specialist Luke Sears has turned an interest in biology and business into a way to keep thousands of people safe every day. The Environmental Health Specialist has been with Catawba County Public Health since 2008 and is currently
working in the food, lodging and institutional side now.
“I did not set out to go into environmental health, but what drew me to it is my background in biology and business,” said Sears. “I’m using my biology background in being able to look at the disease process for foodborne illness and public safety, and business
helps me understand the needs of the business owners I work with every day.”
