Lisa Martin, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor at the University of Michigan Dearborn jointly appointed in Women’s and Gender Studies and Health Policy Studies.  She earned her doctorate in Public Health from the Health Behavior & Health Education Department at the University of Michigan.  She also holds a Master’s Degree in Gender & Cultural Studies from Simmons College.  

Professor Martin teaches classes on gender and health, including women’s health, reproductive health policy, and health behavior and health education theory.  She also serves as the current Director of the Women in Learning and Leadership (WILL) program.
