Cuba Research Tour Was A Success

In June 2012 Marazul Charters, in collaboration with the CSWE Council on Global Learning, Research, and Practice and the Katherine A. Kendall Institute as program consultants, organized a social work research and study tour in Havana, Cuba. Led by David Strug, professor emeritus of social work at Yeshiva University, a delegation of 21 social work educators from across the United States addressed a number of social work oriented topics including end-of-life care issues, school system intervention, the social-political-economic forces that affect social services, international social work, mental health, child welfare, socialism in action, and intergenerational family dynamics.
