In honor of World AIDS Day (December 1), we present the highlights of a conference held at our School about a population that has been almost invisible in the fight against HIV/AIDS: female drug users.
At the beginning of this year, Emily Zivin (MSW'98) joined Wellthy, a company started up by an alumna of Columbia College. She has been linking clients with neurodegenerative disorders to medical providers and helping them find funds to cover treatment costs.
Drs. Shear, Waldfogel and El-Bassel made the top five in a recent list showing citation impact of women academics in schools of social work. CSSW decided to ask them: What hurdles did they have to cross to achieve success? And what advice can they offer to up-and-coming female scholars in social work and related fields?
Columbia School of Social Work has been a leader in social work education and research since 1898. It joins rigorous academic theory with real-world practice to enhance the welfare of citizens and communities in New York City, the nation and around the world.
