Upon returning to school and work post-Irma, our School has turned to assisting in the recovery from that hurricane as well as Maria. Students from our NeighborhoodHelp program have been providing case management and counseling in the special needs shelter here on campus which was initially set up for Hurricane Irma victims from Monroe County and now houses evacuees from the U.S. Virgin Islands. The students also have assisted in food/supply distributions in North Miami Beach. The College is holding a drive for Puerto Rico from Monday, October 2nd through Friday, October 13th for personal hygiene items and baby supplies. For more information on the Stempel College Hurricane Maria Relief Drive, please contact Gladys Ramos at 305-348-5887 or glramos@fiu.edu

We are very proud to announce that our Phi Alpha Chapter has won the National Service Award for the 11th consecutive year. Congratulations to our Phi Alpha students and their advisor, Dr. Mary Helen Hayden for their outstanding work in the community! We are also thrilled to share that David Saltman, longtime adjunct instructor, will receive the Lifetime Achievement Golden Age Award from the Latino Center on Aging on October 6th. 

The School has also received the HRSA grant for Behavioral Health Workforce Education and Training (BHWET) Fellowship under the leadership of Dr. Eric Wagner, along with three other graduate programs at FIU. Select students in their advanced clinical internship will receive a significant monetary stipend, tuition waiver, and training on integrated behavioral health-primary care and inter-professional approaches to patient care and social determinants of health. 

Finally, the School has a number of continuing education events coming up. The bi-annual Qualified Supervisors Training/Field Instructors’ Training (16 CEUs) will be on January 19th and 26th. For information and registration, please contact Jessica Arguello at 305-348-3881 or
