Bringing Rural to Social Work

Jan and Saundra were guest speakers at the College of Social Work seminar on Friday, April 17.  Saundra's presentation focused on the many activities of the USC Institute for Partnerships to Eliminate Health Disparities, with particular attention to the community based participatory research projects surrounding HPB and HIV in the rural Orangeburg, SC community.  CBPR was catnip to an audience of social work faculty!  Jan focused on the recent work of the SCRHRC from Health Disparities: A Rural-Urban Chartbook.  Numbers are a harder sell for that particular discipline, unless their focus is very macro social work.  But there is a need for all of our gifts.
