Faculty Spotlight

Nancy Morrow-Howell 

In this country, we need to populate a number of different professions to focus on the aging population. We need more students to choose
careers in aging. The theme for the course was “Aging: It’s personal. It’s professional. It’s your future. Transform it.” They’d better get a handle on this or they will be living with the same outdated social and physical structures we are dealing with now.

Social work and public health students at the Brown School are united by a passion to help others.  Gain the knowledge to make great change happen.
