In addition to attending CSWE APM 2019, NC State alumna, Graduate Research Assistant and MSW student Jenn Mathurnin also attended the Alliance of Social Workers in Sports Conference.  The ASWIS conference was held in Denver, Colorado during the same week as CSWE APM. “I absolutely loved participating in the 3rd annual ASWIS conference in Denver. Being a former college athlete, I have a strong passion and understanding for the need of athlete’s overall wellness. Mental health and athletes is a topic that is more talked about and it was really amazing to be surrounded with people who share the same interest and passion I have about the matter. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to talk, and listen to the presentations as well as participate in the different workshops available at the conference. Overall, this was a great experience and I am looking forward to more opportunities like this one in the future. Go Social Work!” Mathurin said of the conference.
