Teaching is, at its core, learning with others. My life is richer by being immersed in the exciting process of discovery and dialogue with students.

Dr. Fleuriet is a cultural and medical anthropologist and professor 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. 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 health disparities in south Texas.
