Joint Program in Social Work

Universities of NCA&T and UNCG

We are delighted to share the news that Ms. Vannessa Gharbi, a doctoral student in the JPSW, collaborated with Dr. Stephanie Teixeira Poit (a faculty member in the Department of Social Work and Sociology at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University) and they received $75,428 in funding for their project, “Predictors of and Strategies to Mitigate COVID-19 Cases and Death Among Older Adults in Nursing Homes and Residential Care Facilities” from the NC Policy Collaboratory.

The JPhD in Social Work offers unique opportunities for students to be mentored by, and work with, faculty at two universities. As this case shows – in what can be rewarding and timely projects! Congratulations to both Ms. Gharbi and Dr. Teixeira Poit!
