More about Dr. Jaslow »
HPA Website »

A specialist in animal behavior and vertebrate anatomy, Jaslow has a passion for showing undergraduates aspects of the natural world that they never knew about before. He enjoys interacting with students in small classes and labs and expects frequent questions. He encourages students who are interested in the health professions to contact him early so he can help them identify their particular interests.
