On April 11, MSW student Linda Levin presented her project “4 Cs of Preparedness: A Community Emergency Network’s Approach to Balancing Community Preparedness and Response During a Global Pandemic” at the 13th Annual Social Work Student Night. Congratulations, Linda!
The event, sponsored by the New York Academy of Medicine Section on Social Work, featured oral presentations of original work performed by graduate students from several Schools of Social Work in the greater New York area. These presentations consisted of content pertaining to social work practice, education, and research that address physical health, mental health and public health issues.
Presentations were followed by a “discussion of the implications for social work practice, education, and research led by the co-chairs of the NYAM Social Work Section, Dr. Elaine Congress and Dr. Patricia Kolb.”
“I was incredibly honored to represent Fordham’s Graduate School of Social Service at the New York Academy of Medicine’s Social Work Student night,” Levin said. “To be able to advance our field and discuss the work I have been doing around public health and disaster preparedness will only further expand the necessary expertise and importance of social work to transform communities, policies and our world.”
Levin also played a large role in this year’s Student Social Work Day at the UN, in collaboration with Rutgers University and Monmouth University’s schools of social work.
