IMPACT: Dispatches from the Front Lines of Global Health

Photographs by Karen Kasmauski

This exhibition features a selection of photographs from IMPACT: Dispatches from the Front Lines of Global Health. A frequent collaborator with National Geographic, Karen Kasmauski is a photographer specializing in global health issues. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, she traveled around the world with CDC staff to document people and places representative of the complexity of public health challenges facing us in the 21st century. Her photographs dramatically capture topics such as children’s health, empowerment of women, safe water, vaccines, education, nutrition, healthy aging, HIV/AIDS, political upheaval, and the impact of climate change.
