Saturday April 23, 2016 was Social Work Day at the San Diego Padres. The purpose of this annual event is to promote public awareness about the many ways in which social workers support and enrich the lives of community members across San Diego County. Each year the four social work programs in the region (CSUSM, SDSU, USC, and Pt. Loma) join together with the San Diego Padres to host the event.
The theme of this year’s event was “Social Workers: Enhancing Healthy Aging”. Specifically, this event honored social workers in gerontology, and the individuals they serve.
Dr. Beecher, Program Director for the Master of Social Work at CSUSM, was interviewed during a pre-game segment by Mike Pomeranz of Fox Sports. Dr. Beecher gave a brief history of the MSW program at CSUSM and highlighted the program attributes, including but not limited to: low faculty to student ratio; faculty research and scholarship activities; and how the program fills North San Diego County’s need for an advanced training degree in Social Work.
