Field Studies lecture to feature BYU alumna Oct. 21

Susanna Johnson, a BYU alumna, will present an International Field Studies lecture titled “The Importance of Exposure to Peoples, Culture and Poverty” Friday, Oct. 21, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

Johnson is a master of social work candidate in the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis following an eventful preparation period surrounding her undergraduate years.

Upon graduation from BYU with a bachelor’s degree in marriage, family, and human development and a minor in international development in 2001, she was an assistant to Dave Shuler, International Field Studies coordinator. Simultaneously, she worked as a care technician at the Center for Change in Orem.

During three research trips to South Africa, Johnson worked with a development organization on a participatory rural appraisal project, worked in a children's home and with street children, gathering information to write case studies.
