The School of Social Work secures almost $1 million in HRSA Behavioral Health Workforce Training funds for the next four years. Each year, twenty master’s students will be placed in field assignments focused on moving Social Work into settings where primary care is integrated with behavioral health. Students will receive a stipend, take courses that focus on integrating primary care and behavioral health across the lifespan, and enroll in a clinical seminar that will enhance their learning and practice. This training grant will provide a rich interprofessional opportunity for our students and faculty to partner with Wheeler Clinic, UConn Health, UConn School of Nursing, and the UConn School of Pharmacy.  The School of Social Work will also be developing new sites for collaboration in the coming months. Dr. Catherine Medina is the PI and Dr. Edna Comer is Co-PI.
