Karen Kasmauski has witnessed more suffering and death than most. She has been jailed and held at gunpoint, the downside of having one of the world’s most sought-after jobs: National Geographic photojournalist.

At Westminster College, presented by the Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy, Kasmauski will expound on the ecology of disease. Her book Impact: From the Front Lines of Global Health delves into diseases—AIDS, SARS, cholera. The underlying theme relates how geography is the root cause, whether it’s changing borders, growing populations or the destruction of the natural environment.

To portray this, she takes you from tearful, AIDS-stricken families in Mumbai to gay bathhouses in San Francisco and to places in between.

The lush photos reach out and pull you in, engaging your attention and illuminating the human dynamic underlying these pervasive problems. When she speaks, her convictions likely will do the same.

Karen Kasmauski: Impact: From the Front Lines of Global Health @ Westminster College Gore Concert Hall, 1840 S. 1300 East, 801-484-7651, Jan. 12, 7:30 p.m.
