May 2016 - Chicago District Update

Grisel Rodriguez-Morales, MSW, LCSW

Extraordinary membership!!! – I’m inspired by the greatly engaged Chicago District membership. You have stayed connected through our district events, via e-mail, and taking action during calls to reach out to legislators. You may have spread the word and encouraged other social workers to become members. Your vote of confidence is something we don’t take lightly. Feel free to always reach out to us to express your concerns or ideas.

Chicago Young Professionals Group (YPG) Event – Don’t miss this interesting evening of policy discussion and networking to take place on Thursday, May 5th at Jack’s Tap. More information and registration here.

Upcoming Cultural Competence CEU Event – A strengths-based focus will lead this panel of experts that will discuss health and mental health issues for undocumented immigrants, who have been left out of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).  Learning objectives for this event include revision of health and mental health care barriers faced by undocumented immigrants in Illinois as well as identification of concrete advocacy tasks that participants can attempt with the goal of expanding services for this population.  This 1.5-hour CEU event include a networking opportunity immediately following the panel discussion. Click here for information about panelists and registration. We hope to see you at “Healthcare for Undocumented Immigrants”
