Whether newly in the profession or seasoned professionals, social workers make a positive impact on society throughout their careers.
For example, younger social workers such as Erin Merryn and Rodney Smith are making tremendous strides. Merryn, 34, is pushing states to pass laws to educate children on how to avoid sexual abuse while Rodney Smith Jr., 29, travels nationwide urging youth to volunteer and help neighbors by doing activities such as cutting grass.
Seasoned social workers like Ruth A. Brandwein received an NASW Lifetime Achievement Award for her work advocating for children, the homeless, women and people of color. Dana Courtney, a North Carolina social worker, goes to cookouts and fish fries to encourage thousands of people to register to vote.
During Social Work Month 2020 the National Association of Social Workers will celebrate the profession with the “Social Work: Generations Strong!” campaign. As we enter a new decade, the campaign will spotlight social workers from various generations, use new tools to educate the public about the invaluable work that social workers do, and encourage social workers to uplift the profession by joining organizations that benefit social work.

In 2019, Florida passed the Telehealth Bill which establishes standards of practice for telehealth services, including patient evaluations, record-keeping, and controlled substances prescribing. The bill also authorizes out-of-state health care practitioners to perform telehealth services for patients in Florida upon meeting certain eligibility requirements and registering with the department.
The Florida Department of Health has created a website that allows interested parties to sign up for updates and register to become an out-of-state telehealth provider. More information, please visit: flhealthsource.gov/telehealth
Thank you to everyone who submitted a proposal.
