The Walden PhD Journey: Completing a Doctoral Program
For MSW graduate Maria Ponzi, Walden’s mission of positive social change aligns with her career in social work. A health educator at Adagio Health in Youngstown, Ohio, Ponzi builds off of the skills she learned at Walden to provide prevention education to youth about HIV/AIDS, STDs, and unintended pregnancy. By earning her advanced social work degree, she transitioned into a case management position where she could understand and deal with the atypical situations of those affected by HIV/AIDS in her community.
