The Ehrlich Research Group


Welcome to the Ehrlich Research Group at the University of Michigan, led by Joshua Ehrlich, MD, MPH. We study vision and its vast impact on health, disability, and wellbeing. We have a particular interest in understanding and addressing the impact of vision impairment and blindness on the lives of older adults, including their influence on cognitive, psychosocial, and physical health. Our research is interdisciplinary, drawing on epidemiology, demography, health services research, and clinical insights. We work in the U.S. and globally, including in India and East Africa.
