Nancy Fleischer is the John G. Searle Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at the University of Michigan. Dr. Fleischer is a social epidemiologist who investigates how the broader policy and socioeconomic environments impact health disparities and the health of vulnerable populations, in the US and around the world. Her research focuses on global non-communicable disease risk, and the growing burden of smoking and obesity.
