BSW Cording & MSW Hooding


jefferson memorial 1626580 960 720The CoSW is pleased to have 4 students attending the 2017 HEALS Policy Summit in Washington, DC. MSW students Andrea Johnson and Akua Adams, and BSW students Jordan Thompson and Dee Gamble will participate in the summit at the National Association of Social Work (NASW) National Office and meet with the SC delegation on Capital Hill. A key part of the summit is training the students to advocate for legislation important to the social work profession and its clients. As part of the training, HEALS students hear from Senate staff and lobbyists about best practices in advocating for issues important to social work in Congress. Attendees also hear inspiring stories from social work leaders whose careers took unexpected pathways.

Social Work HEALS (Healthcare Education and Leadership Scholars) aims to educate and train emerging social workers to strengthen the delivery of health care services in the United States. Social Work HEALS scholars have heightened awareness of prevention and wellness and learn how to address issues of structural racism that are embedded in social institutions. We are one of only 10 schools across the country to train HEALS scholars. The Social Work Heals grant is funded by The New York Community Trust with Dr. Teri Browne as Principle Investigator and Dr. Melissa Reitmeier as Co- Principle Investigator.
