My name is Blake Jones. Here we explore the intersection of social work research practice and education. Our goal is to showcase the amazing people associated with our college and to give our listeners practical tools that they can use to change the world. Blake: [00:00:25] Well on today’s podcast we’re doing something a little bit different here in Kentucky we have something called Lobby Day coming up on March the 7th 2019 in Frankfort Kentucky which is our state capitol here. And on today’s podcast we’ve talked with several different people that are affiliated with the University of Kentucky College of Social Work. And I’m really excited about this podcast. We’ve stitched together different perspectives. We’ve talked with Brenda Rosen who is the executive director of the National Association of Social Workers here in Kentucky. We’ve talked to several students Tori Monnett and Shyan Stivers and Daniel Beasley – these are undergraduate students who are very interested in advocacy and policy work. And so I hope you’ll like this podcast. We’ll hear from their different perspectives.

So we hope you will listen to and share this podcast widely especially here in Kentucky. We’re excited about March 7th 2019 lobby day and we hope that you will be there if you can. We hope that you will support our students and faculty as they travel there and really faculty and students all over Kentucky. It’s an exciting day. So mark your calendars March 7th 2019.
