Social Work Professor Named Editor of Professional Journal

March, 2007

Stephen Gorin, longtime PSU social work professor, was recently selected by the National Association of Social Workers to be the new editor-in-chief of the quarterly journal Health & Social Work. Gorin’s tenure as editor began on January 1, 2007 and will continue through December 2010. Gorin had been a contributing editor of the journal.

A high-profile leader in social work and in health care policy, Gorin has served on President Clinton’s Health Care Task Force and the Advisory Council of the Center for Mental Health Services in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. He has also served as a delegate for the White House Conference on Aging and on Social Security.

“Dr. Gorin will be an enormous asset to Health & Social Work as editor-in-chief,” said Cheryl Bradley, publisher of the NASW Press. “He has a distinct interest in national
health care reform and resolving disparities in health care. These issues are extremely relevant to Health & Social Work.”—Bruce Lyndes
