NASW-NYC x Empire BCBS

Senior Series

 

    

 

 

The NASW-NYC Chapter and Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield have developed a working partnership that aims to create engagement opportunities where information is provided about the work that NASW-NYC and Empire BCBS do and to look at the various ways in which social work and health care intersect.

 

An honored and esteemed sponsor of the 13th Annual Leadership Awards Gala, Empire BCBS has been a continued support in the work that the NASW-NYC chapter does. Last winter, the partnership led to a successful Holiday Resource and Job Fair where sixteen organizations were featured and 350 plus hygiene kits were secured for NYC-Relief, an organization that serves those enduring homelessness.

 

To continue and further this partnership, we are offering a four-part series, spread out over two weeks, that discusses items specific to seniors and the social workers that serve them.

 

Open to both social workers that work with seniors, caregivers, students of social work studying elder care, and seniors themselves, we urge you all to join us for this incredible FREE and VIRTUAL series.

 

This series is open and FREE for both NASW-NYC Members and Non-Members. Please note all portions of the series will be held virtually. 

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to email cares.naswnyc@socialworkers.org.
