Director, Sustainable Foods, Healthy Communities Program
Nicki Milgrom joined the Ecology Center staff in September 2013 to support Michigan Pledge signing hospitals while also educating and activating health professionals.
She earned her Masters in Public Health from the University of Michigan and holds a bachelors degree in anthropology and global health from Emory University. Prior to the Ecology Center, Nicki helped coordinate Washtenaw County Public Health’s innovative fruit and vegetable prescription program – Prescription For Health.
Her interest in sustainable food systems was first sown while working on the student committee to develop Emory University’s cutting edge commitment to source 75 percent local or sustainably grown food in its hospitals and cafeterias by 2015. Her interest grew while living and working with small-scale subsistence farmers in rural Uganda, where she pioneered and lead a community development program focused on sustainable agriculture, food security, health and nutrition.
