Susan L. Andreatta

**PhD Michigan State University 1994**As an applied sociocultural anthropologist, I am interested in environmental and medical anthropology. For the past two decades I have worked in a number of regions and countries including the Caribbean, Latin America, Southeastern States, Uganda and China. My fieldwork experiences have allowed me to work with farmers, fishermen, immigrant agricultural laborers, and health care providers. Over the years students have participated in many of these applied research projects and have written papers for publication, and presented their papers and posters at conferences.

There are 11 included publications by Susan L. Andreatta :
