Michael Reger currently serves as an Associate Professor of the Practice in the Eck Institute for Global Health, after joining the University of Notre Dame in the Summer of 2022. He earned his B.S. in Health Sciences from Purdue University, and his MPH and PhD in Epidemiology from Indiana University. From 2014 to 2022 he was an assistant/associate professor of public health at Ferris State University in Big Rapids, MI. There he established a broad background in public health teaching and course development, working in many different areas of public health including epidemiology, biostatistics, environmental health, public health nutrition, health behavior and health promotion, and others. Working at a teaching institution for eight years allowed him to shape his general teaching philosophy, which consists of approachability and availability to students, as well as the belief that a professor should be a resource for student success. At Notre Dame, his research will focus on chronic disease epidemiology, specifically understudied, modifiable nutritional factors working towards the goal of primary prevention.
