Levy featured in book about gerontological social work

Dr. Patricia Levy, assistant professor of sociology at Fort Hays State University, has written a chapter that was accepted for publication in the book "Days in the Lives of Gerontological Social Workers."

Levy received a Ph.D. from the School of Human Services at Capella University in 2006 and is a social work graduate of Bar ILan University in Israel. She has an extensive background in multicultural practice with children, families and the aged in both the United States and Israel.

This is the third book in the "Days in the Lives of Gerontological Social Workers" series. Levy's chapter, "Gas Masks, Self Affirmation, and War in Israel" is one of 44 chapters chosen for publication.

This book is designed to give readers a firsthand, close-up look at real-life experiences that professionals in the social work field encounter. It gives readers a chance to "tag along" and get an inside look at the work these professionals do in nursing homes, hospitals, community agencies and a variety of other settings.

"Dr. Levy is a valued member of the Department of Sociology and Social Work. Her experience in Israel is especially valued as it gives students an international perspective on the discipline," commented Rose Arnhold, chair of the Department of Sociology and Social Work.
