Virtual Event Virtual Event

Join the Center for Innovation in Social Work & Health at BU School of Social Work (BUSSW) and BUSSW Votes for the first conversation in the From Ballots to Better Health virtual series, Combatting Disinformation and Voting for Social Determinants of Health. In this timely discussion, Dr. Timothy Clancy, assistant research scientist at the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism at the University of Maryland; and Vanessa Navarro (MSW’24), democracy fellow at the Campus Voter Project at BUSSW and Vot-ER fellow will share how social workers can leverage their understanding of systemic injustices to vote discerningly and advocate for policies that uphold social work values – especially in an age of rampant disinformation.

The target audience of this lecture and discussion is LICSW, LCSW, LSW, LSWA, and other health care professionals. Combatting Disinformation and Voting for Social Determinants of Health is approved by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) Approved Continuing Education (ACE) program to be offered by the Center for Innovation in Social Work and Health as an individual course. Individual courses, not providers, are approved at the course level.  State and provincial regulatory boards have the final authority to determine whether an individual course may be accepted for continuing education credit. ACE course approval period: 3/28/2024 – 3/28/2026. Social workers completing this course receive 1.25 continuing education credits.
