Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate Charles D. Baker Jr., speaking at a Graduate School of Social Work forum Monday, endorsed the social work profession as a key player in health care reform.
"When I think of social workers, I think of problem-solvers," said Baker, former CEO of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, lauding social workers’ ability to "stitch clinical and social service issues together with real-life implications."
"They deal with the complexity of problems that don’t fit neatly into categories."
Baker was the keynote speaker at "Health Care Reform: From Policy to Practice," organized by GSSW to examine the potential roles and challenges for social workers in the wake of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). An audience of nearly 300, most of them social work professionals and academics, filled the Corcoran Commons Heights Room for the event, which also featured a panel discussion moderated by National Association of Social Workers CEO Angelo McClain PhD ’01, former commissioner for the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families.
