Hartford Hospital Celebrates Social Work Month

Print icon

National Social Work Month is celebrated every year during the month of March. During this year’s celebration, Hartford Hospital is recognizing the extraordinary contributions of this profession by encouraging people to reflect on this year’s theme, “Elevate Social Work.”

Social workers elevate and empower people, giving them the ability to solve problems, cope with personal roadblocks and get the resources they need to succeed. Social workers are trained to examine and address life’s problems in a holistic way, which supports healthy patients and a healthy society.

For more than a century, social work has been on the cutting edge by helping create changes that make the world a better place. Social workers have advocated for voting rights, improved workplace safety, a minimum wage and social safety net programs that ameliorate poverty and hunger. In this way, social workers are active well beyond the health care setting.

In recognition of the numerous contributions made by Hartford Hospital’s social workers, you are invited to celebrate and support the social work profession on campus and beyond.
