Version 1:


Lisa Harris, MD, PhD, is the F. Wallace and Janet Jeffries Collegiate Professor of Reproductive Health, and Professor and Associate Chair in University of Michigan’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She is also a Professor of Women's and Gender Studies in UM’s College of Literature, Sciences and Arts.  She directs UM’s Fellowship in Complex Family Planning, as well as the undergraduate Health Sciences Scholars Program.


 After college and medical school at Harvard University, Dr. Harris completed residency at University of California, San Francisco.  Because so many issues in reproductive health have to do as much with culture and politics as with biomedical sciences, she went on to earn a PhD in American Culture.  She is now an active clinician, teacher and researcher.  Her clinical work focuses on miscarriage and family planning. She teaches across disciplines and schools at UM. Her research is similarly interdisciplinary, exploring abortion stigma, experiences of abortion care providers, race and social class stratification of reproduction, and the role of doctors’ voices in shifting culture for abortion. She is the recipient of a variety of awards, including the Association of Reproductive Health Professional's "Preserving Core Values in Science Award,” and the Society of Family Planning’s Outstanding Researcher Award
