What is Access Key?
Social Work and Health care, Bioethics,
My name is Heather M. Sloane and I am a lecturer at the University of Toledo in the Social Work Program. I taught at Owens Community College in Findlay and Bowling Green State University as an adjunct prior to coming to UT. I have taught Introduction to Social Work, Social Work Policy and Interviewing and Observation in the past. At UT my teaching has focused on field. I was a field instructor for the University of Illinois in Champaign/Urbana for many years. I have worked in a variety of health care settings as a social worker most recently as a perinatal social worker. A Perinatal social worker is a social worker that works with pregnant women and babies up to a year old. I worked with high risk pregnancy and in the neonatal intensive care unit as well as labor and delivery and the obstetrics clinic. I have written and given talks on issues of bioethics and have worked as a bedside consultant as part of a hospital ethics committee. I developed a program with the University of Illinois and Carle Foundation hospital to provide college mentors for pregnant teens. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from the College of William and Mary in psychology and my MSW from Virginia Commonwealth University with a concentration in Health Care. I have enjoyed my work with the students at the University of Toledo - they have been an inspiration.
I lived near three cities growing up. Each of these places reminds me of Toledo and each of these places has influenced who I am.
I spent four years learning about everything I could, including dance, in what feels like a "living museum" in Williamsburg, VA. Being at W&M helped me to appreciate the importance of learning about a variety of subjects.
The College of William and Mary
I spent two years living in the city of Richmond working with the homeless and with surgical patients at the Medical College of Virginia while earning my MSW. I lived in a tiny little apartment in the "Fan", which are streets that branch out from the city and from a helicopter resemble a fan.
Southerners will note the blooming crepe myrtle in the picture. I miss sugar magnolia trees as well. Richmond, VA just near the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University.
