The first week of March is Social Work Week in Ontario. We are happy to have the opportunity to support several educational events for our Social Worker colleagues. Next week, March 3, 2010 we are sponsoring the luncheon and speaker at North York General Hospital.The event is entitled “The Long Shadow of Poverty for Social Work Practice” and is being presented by Brigitte Kitchen, M.S.W., Ph.D.
Dr. Brigitte Kitchen is a senior scholar and well respected in the field of social work/social policy and poverty. She is the co-editor and founder of the Canadian Review of Social Policy/Revue Canadienne de Politique Sociale and Professor Emeritus at York University School of Social Work.
We are looking forward to attending this important event and we wish all of our Social Work colleagues an inspiring Social Work Week!
