“I will be sharing information about social work and health care with my Hungarian colleagues and helping them to develop social work curriculum,” said Borst. She will be in Hungary for five months, beginning in the fall of 2009, teaching classes on social work and hospitals and social work and AIDS.
Borst said she plans to bring along copies of her new book, Social Work and Health Care: Policy, Practice and Professionalism. “Textbooks about health care and social work are not available in Hungary so I’m hoping it will serve as a good teaching tool.”
Borst has been teaching at Grand Valley for 10 years. She is one of about 1,100 U.S faculty and professionals who will travel abroad through the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program.
