Denise Valerio Presents Care Management to Temple University Bioethics Class

On June 21, 2017, Denise Valerio gave a presentation to a Bioethics Class in the Temple University School of Medicine on Care Management as yet another option in our healthcare system.  The class was offered for the first time this year under the MA Urban Bioethics Program within the Lewis Katz School of Medicine. The professor, Providenza (Enza) Rocco, JD, MSW, MBE specializes in bioethics.  The class was made up of medical students, social workers, nurses, an activity therapist, and various other healthcare professionals.  They were a very engaging and attentive group of folks who were VERY interested in understanding more about care management – who we are, what we do, and how to access us.  Denise truly enjoyed speaking to them and the presentation was a little over an hour in length.  Denise sends a “thank you” to our colleague and fellow member, Sharon Dickol, for passing her name along to this professor.  She reports this event really stimulated a part of her brain that was a little dormant and dusty, and she got a good high from it and is motivated even more to continue to do this work!!
