Dr. Jill Fleuriet is a cultural and medical anthropologist. She is Associate Professor of Anthropology and Associate Dean of the Honors College at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA). Her roots are in South Texas. She grew up in Harlingen, Texas, in a family with a long history of professional and volunteer service. She earned her BA in Anthropology from Harvard College, MA from San Diego State University, MA from Stanford University, and PhD in Anthropology from Stanford University. What drew her to UTSA remains her primary professional motivation: to engage in research, teaching, and service that help to understand sociocultural processes that influence ethnic and gendered health disparities in South Texas. In 2015, Dr. Fleuriet won the UTSA President’s Distinguished Achievement Award for Teaching Excellence and in 2016, won the UTSA President’s Distinguished Achievement Award for Community Engagement.
