The Stony Brook School of Social Welfare (SSW) recently hosted an open house luncheon in honor of Social Work Month to celebrate and honor the remarkable contributions and profound impact of all of the dedicated social workers at Stony Brook University, Stony Brook University Hospital and the Long Island State Veterans Home.

The event, held in March, included 175 social workers from around campus who were invited to join the faculty and staff from SSW for lunch and networking. The theme for Social Work Month 2024 was “Empowering Social Workers.”

It was wonderful to meet students and faculty and learn more about their important work,” said Interim Executive Vice President of Stony Brook Medicine William Wertheim, MD, who attended the luncheon. “Our social workers are an integral part of how we care for our community and critical to the success of Stony Brook Medicine as an academic healthcare leader.
