After the 2020 U.S. presidential election—and amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and continuing racial injustice—the role for social work and public health in addressing pressing health and social justice issues will be more crucial than ever before. In this post-election discussion, Rebekah Gewirtz, Executive Director of the National Association of Social Workers – MA Chapter, and Carlene Pavlos, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Public Health Association, discussed their organizations’ priorities, policy agendas, and strategies, and provided analysis on how practitioners and leaders in social work and public health can identify opportunities and work toward positive change during the next administration. Hosted by the Center for Innovation in Social Work & Health at Boston University’s School of Social Work.
