Dean Alberto Godenzi Counsels NFL on Domestic Violence

OCTOBER 24, 2014

Dean Alberto Godenzi from the Boston College School of Social Work proposed a suggestion for how the National Football League (NFL) can take an "unequivocal stance on domestic violence" in an op-ed for the Boston Globe.

Godenzi suggests that the league should ask team captains to read a statement against domestic violence and sexual abuse prior to the kickoff of games. It's an idea Godenzi borrows from the playbook of soccer's major governing body, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), who launched an anti-racism campaign in response to repeated acts of intolerance from players, fans, and management.  More from the blog Innovate@BCSocialWork »

As health care reform continues to unfold across the U.S., Boston College Graduate School of Social Work will explore the context of the reform and its impact on the social work profession. Our school will invite key thought-leaders on health care to speak in a series of presentations this fall, culminating in the "Health Care Reform: From Policy to Practice Forum" on February 24, 2014. Kicking off the series is a presentation by Nancy Turnbull, a national expert on health care and the consumer perspective.

Turnbull is an associate dean and senior lecturer on health policy at the Harvard School of Public Health. She currently serves as the consumer representative on the board of the Commonwealth Health Insurance Connector Authority, the state's insurance exchange. Turnbull is also on the board of the board of Commonwealth Care Alliance, a consumer-governed organization that provides integrated physical and behavioral health.
