Dr. Jay Poole

Dr. Jay Poole (Social Work) was awarded funding by the Annie Penn Hospital for the project “Congregational Social Work Education Initiative (CSWEI) Expansion into Rockingham County.” This project will create a congregational nursing program in Rockingham County, provide two paid congregational nurses to work with Hispanic and homeless residents and connect these individuals to existing primary medical homes, the abstract states. “In doing so, it will expand access to care by creating established pathways that members of vulnerable populations within a rural county can use to access affordable medical care.” The Congregational Social Work Education Initiative will be a partner in the project. Social work students from UNCG and NC A&T State will be involved.
