Alma T. Young (1930 - 2012)

A clinician, supervisor, educator, and local and national leader in social work, Dr. Alma young devoted her early work with pregnant adolescents and young women of reproductive age, which have been highlighted in her publications which are still drawn on in social work education.
She was on the staff of Mount Sinai Hospital Medical Center, Department of Social Work from 1960-1998. She contributed immensely at Mount Sinai, in staff development, student education (both social work and medical) and in the development of quality assurance of delivered social services. One of her major contributions in quality assurance was the development and implementation of a structured method for the documentation of social work notes to the medical chart. Chart notation was formalized and became a component in the Joint Commission on Accreditation for accrediting social work in hospitals.
Dr. Young was an active member in numerous professional organizations and held leadership roles both in local and national associations including: American Public Health Association, Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) and the National Association of Social Workers (NASW). She held various leadership positions in these organizations including chairperson, and brought her knowledge and skills regarding practice, education and program innovations into their planning enterprise.
In her latter years, she had a major commitment to the New Alternative for Children of which she was a founding member and its first president. She remained active on boards and served as a consultant to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, the Planned Parenthood Federation, and The Adolescent Health Center (MSMC).
She was a teacher not only in social work at Mount Sinai, but also in nursing and medicine. In addition, she taught courses in social work at Columbia University, Hunter College, New York University, Rutger's and a host of other educational institutions.
Dr. Young wrote extensively on service development, accountability, unmarried mothers, adolescents, maternal and child health, chronic illness, minorities and prevention and health education. For her many contributions to the field, she received many awards including Social Worker of the Year for Outstanding Achievement and Exemplary Service to the Profession Award.
