Rebekah Nagler is an assistant professor in the Hubbard School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota. Her research examines the effects of routine exposure to health information in the media, with a particular focus on conflicting and often controversial information about cancer prevention and screening. Additional research interests include communication inequalities, health disparities (along racial/ethnic minority, socioeconomic status, and gender lines), and tobacco control.
From January 2014-July 2017, Rebekah was supported by a career development award through the University of Minnesota's NIH-funded Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women's Health (BIRCWH) program. Before coming to Minnesota, Rebekah was a postdoctoral research fellow in the Harvard Education Program in Cancer Prevention at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. During her doctoral training, Rebekah was a research fellow at the Center of Excellence in Cancer Communication Research at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania. Prior to pursuing graduate studies, she was a consultant at the Advisory Board Company, a health care research, technology, and consulting firm in Washington, DC.
Rebekah received her PhD in Communication and her BA in the History and Sociology of Science, both from the University of Pennsylvania.
