Employer-sponsored activity: preventive care for men

Staying healthy is important, and one way to do that is getting preventive care. Screening tests help find diseases early — before you have symptoms. This is when diseases are easier to treat. The screening tests needed depend on age, family history, your own health history and other risk factors. We are focusing on men’s health this month. Use the guidelines below to have a conversation with your health care provider or a loved one, to make sure you or a loved one is up to date with the screenings they need.
Community-Based Learning LEARN Center Panel

The social work professional education program curriculum design is guided by the Council on Social Work Education Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards. There are nine required core competencies that are integrated throughout the courses in the Bachelor of Social Work and the Masters in Social Work programs. These nine core competencies are aligned with student learning outcomes in the community-based learning field education courses. This presentation, from noon-1 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 17, in UC 275A, will overview how the social work program integrates and assesses the core social work competencies into the community-based student learning outcomes in the social work field experience courses.
