March is National Social Work Month, and to celebrate, the department of social work at Southeast Missouri State University hosted its first Jane Adams Lecture Series on Tuesday. Their main speaker was former congressman Edolphus Towns from New York, who created the Congressional Social Work Caucus and served in the House of Representatives from 1983 to 2013. He sat down with us to share the main points of his lecture and to talk about the importance of social work.
