Repeal, Replace & Retract: Implications of Obamacare Reforms for Social Work Practice

05.11.2015

CSWE (Council on Social Work Education) announced the 10 social work programs or program collaboratives selected to participate in Social Work HEALS: Social Work Health Care Education and Leadership Scholars. University of South Carolina is amongst the chosen ones.

Dr. Teri Browne and Dr. Melissa Reitmeier will be directing the work and provide 5-years of fellowships for 2 Co

SW BSW and 2 MSW students each year.

Social Work HEALS is a partnership of CSWE and the National Association of Social Workers Foundation that aims to develop the next generation of health-care social work leaders who will stand ready to lead efforts to address system-level changes, to heighten awareness of prevention and wellness, and to address the issues of structural racism that are embedded in social institutions.

These 10 programs will serve as the hub for scholarships to support education in the field of health care for baccalaureate and master’s social work students and field instructors. They also will form a consortium to learn from each other and deepen their commitment to infusing health issues into their curricula. Over the course of the Social Work HEALSprogram, approximately 200 students will have the opportunity to experience robust health-care education and training, connect with peers, advocate for policy issues, and practice as members of interprofessional health-care teams.
