GSA receives grant to strengthen social work practice for older adults
Date:2/7/2013

nd to have a greater impact on practice. An estimated 220,000 licensed social workers provide services to older adults and their families in the U.S., but only five percent have specialized in gerontology. The John A. Hartford Foundation has already invested over $62 million in addressing this recognized shortage in trained geriatric social workers.

"The John A. Hartford Foundation is pleased that GSA will be leading these renewed efforts and that we will be continuing the important public-private partnership with the Veterans Administration," said Nora OBrien-Suric, PhD, the foundation's senior program officer for this grant. "The work of the Hartford/VA research scholars supported under this program will have direct impact on social work interventions in the provision of VA services to older veterans."

The entire project will be steered by a National Advisory Board chaired by GSA Fellow Barbara Berkman, DSW, PhD, who also serves as the national program director for the HGSWI's Scholars Program.

"I am so excited to be working with such an esteemed group of individuals who represent many disciplines and who will support the National Center by providing guidance and oversight to the program," said Berkman, the Helen Rehr/Ruth Fizdale Professor at the Columbia University School of Social Work. "These board members will play an important role as we envision the future of the HGSWI."
