Nancy Berglas, DrPH, is a public health social scientist at ANSIRH. She conducts quantitative and qualitative studies on issues of adolescent sexual health, abortion, contraception, and the role of evidence in program development and policymaking. Her recent work at ANSIRH examines the abortion activities of state and local health departments and evaluates the effects of state-level policies that target abortion and alcohol/drug use during pregnancy. With colleagues at UCSF’s Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies, she leads a three-year initiative that engages key systems -- including schools, parents, and clinics -- to meet critical gaps in sexual health education and services for youth in rural communities of Fresno County. She also serves on the Editorial Board of Sex Education. Dr. Berglas received her BA from Brown University, MHS from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and DrPH from the University of California, Berkeley School of Public Health.
