March is National Social Worker Month

Join NHPCO in celebrating National Social Work Month.  Notably, March 17 is celebrated as World Social Work Day.  Nowhere are the skills of the professional social worker more valued than in hospice and palliative care.

Among their many contributions to society, professional social workers help us discover our potential as human beings and help us improve our lives and those of our loved ones. There is no better example of this than the dedicated professionals who work in the hospice and palliative care field.

Each and every day, they help patients and their families live fully— and find peace and dignity—during the most challenging stage of life.

NHPCO and members of our National Council of Hospice and Palliative Professionals are proud to recognize these dedicated colleagues during National Social Work Month.

NHPCO encourages members to visit the Web site of the National Association of Social Workers for information and resources about this national observance: www.socialworkers.org.
