Paige Sable, MSW, LICSW is a doctoral student at the University of Pittsburgh School of Social Work. She earned her MSW with a direct practice focus in 2015, and a B.S. in Psychology and Sociology with a certificate in Conceptual Foundations of Medicine in 2013, both from the University of Pittsburgh.
Since graduating with her MSW, Paige has worked as a hospital social worker in a variety of settings, navigating chronic and acute psychosocial needs in partnership with patients and families. Paige most recently worked at Boston Children’s Hospital in an outpatient specialty clinic, where she was involved in several research and program development projects. Her experience in healthcare has informed her interests to include the role and impact of social workers within healthcare settings. Paige would like to further explore where and how social workers are utilized within interdisciplinary healthcare teams and whether this has an impact on healthcare outcomes in relation to social determinants of health.
