Cover Story:


Connecting Individual Health with Public Health

New interdisciplinary approaches are needed to solve today’s health care challenges. The solution lies at the nexus of social work, public health, and medicine.



Changing the Role of Child Welfare

Should child welfare be approached from a criminal justice perspective or that treats abuse and neglect as discrete incidents or should it be approached from a public health perspective that takes a more comprehensive view?



Green Dream

The social work profession has been slow to engage the issue of environmental justice, but a student-led initiative may spark new interest.



Serving Soldiers

The needs of returning veterans have changed, which has opened opportunities for new collaborations between schools of social work and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
