Marcus Poindexter featured in Pitt magazine for community service


PITT MAGAZINE - Marcus Poindexter (BCHS '10, SOC WK '10) was recently recognized in Pitt magazine--and in a local ad campaign--as an example of Pitt's commitment to community service. Poindexter is among the hundreds of Pitt social work students who annually log the collective equivalent of $6 million in services to the Pittsburgh area, helping to strengthen communities and address signifi­cant societal challenges.

A graduate of the joint MPH-MSW program offered by Pitt Public Health and Pitt's School of Social Work, Poindexter is currently pursuing a PhD in social work where his research interests include find­ing solutions to health care disparities that affect African Americans with chronic dis­eases. Just as Pitt Public Health students complete residencies or practica, social work students contribute community service hours before they go into the world as full-fledged professionals.
