This year Belmont’s BSW program won first place in the poster competition. Belmont University’s Bachelor in Social Work program won first place in the poster competition at Social Work Day on the Hill on March 27. The students presented their policy analysis on Senate Bill 0804 and House Bill 0937 (to amend Tennessee Code Annotated Title 4 and Title 71) in order to ensure Tennessee’s present and future governors preserve the state’s right to deny expansion of Medicaid.
Social Work Day on the Hill is an annual event sponsored by the National Association of Social Workers. Practitioners, educators and students from all over the state come together at Legislative Plaza to discuss the policy responses to the issues that impact our profession and the clients we serve. In addition to presenting knowledgeable speakers and legislators, the event serves as a call to action and is a unifying experience that links the practice community to social welfare policy.
