Graduate Student Lauren Olsen Wins ASA Award

Lauren Olsen, PhD candidate at the UCSD Department of Sociology, has won the 2018 Louise Johnson Scholar Award of the ASA Medical Sociology Section. Selection for the Louise Johnson Scholar Award is based on academic merit and the quality of an accepted ASA paper related to medical sociology.

The Louise Johnson Scholar fund was established in memory of Louise Johnson, a pioneering medical sociologist whose mentorship and scholarship the American Sociological Association is pleased to honor. As the Scholar recipient, Olsen will receive travel funds up to $500 to present at the annual ASA meetings in Chicago and attend section events. Her award will be presented at the section awards ceremony at ASA.

Congratulations Lauren!
