Our Story

Ever since SRA-NYC's founder,  Dr. Jodie Abbatangelo-Gray, spent time as an educator and small animal husbandry volunteer in rural Guatemala nearly 2 decades ago, she envisioned combining her skills and passions to serve communities across the globe─ and thus was born Summit Research Associates NYC.  SRA-NYC is built on a commitment to conduct research that contributes to the health and well-being of populations worldwide.
