The USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work presents:
Issues & Insights: A Conversation about Homelessness
Homelessness is a hot button topic, but what exactly is it? USC faculty are at the forefront of pinpointing the underlying causes and unique social, emotional, and healthcare needs of people experiencing homelessness. Join us for a candid and engaging conversation with two social work experts, Benjamin Henwood and Eric Rice, at the USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work.
Professor Henwood is a national proponent of "Housing First," a model focusing on placing people in permanent supportive housing. Professor Rice focuses on youth experiencing homelessness and works with colleagues in the USC Viterbi School of Engineering to merge social work science and AI, seeking novel solutions to homelessness.
Both professors teach students in the USC Master of Social Work (MSW) program and use real-world examples and research to prepare students to make an impact in their communities.
Light refreshments and Q&A will follow.
