GSS Alumna Presents at NASWF Pioneer Event


This month, Fordham GSS alumna Chelsea Bonosky, GSS ’23, presented her research at this year’s National Association of Social Work Foundation’s (NASWF) Pioneers® event.

Bonosky’s research presentation was titled “Benefits of Movement Interventions: Prevention and Rehabilitation.”

“Being able to present at the NASW Pioneer Luncheon alongside a panel of such inspiring colleagues was a true honor,” Bonosky said. “Representing research on the power of art interventions and their intersection with young girls and women’s rights is the foundation of my work—which resonated with many in the field of whom I admire.”

Bonosky’s work in this area of research dates back to her time as an M.S.W. student at GSS. She also presented her findings at last year’s New York Academy of Medicine 14th Annual Student Night.

As a student, Bonosky also served as an integral student member of GSS’s Institute for Women and Girls and completed a field internship with the United Nations.
