WSSW Doctoral Student, Strauss, Honored by NY Academy of Medicine
The New York Academy of Medicine Section on Social Work held its first annual Student Night in April. The event honored students from 5 NYC schools of social work for their work in community health care. Wurzweiler’s doctoral student, Judy Strauss, was recognized for her research on Baby Boomers’ roles and attitudes towards menopause.
Judy Strauss, who successfully defended her dissertation this spring, joined students from NYU, Columbia, Fordham, and Lehman College in displaying posters of their work at a reception preceding the awards. The reception was followed by formal presentations by the honorees of their work to a crowd of deans, faculty, students, families and friends, and presentation of certificates. The students were also given a year’s free membership in the Social Work Fellows’ section of the Academy.
Welcome to our new New at Wurz blog. Because there's so much happening at Wurzweiler School of Social Work, our first New at Wurz blog was getting awfully long. Also, there were some new features we wanted to try out, like the slide show you'll see on the posting about our recent 50th Anniversary Celebration.
