PHSW in the field

No day is the same. Public health social workers are tackling some of the biggest challenges in our country and around the world, every day. Take a look at what some of our colleagues are doing.

From Malawi, public health social worker Ellen McCurley has been addressing the health care needs of children and families through the Pendulum Project:

Ellen gave the commencement address for the 2009 graduating class of BU School of Social Work where she spoke of her journey to the field and where it has taken her.

Stateside, public health social worker Lauren Schiffer discusses why she chose social work after starting out in a public health program. Here she discusses her work with adolescents at Upham’s Corner Health Center.
