Quantitative Social Work Found to be in the National Interest
Social workers are often thought of as warm and caring, less often as expert data analysts. However, our client was the second as well as the first, and it was on this basis that she sought a National Interest Waiver. We submitted a detailed response to an RFE arguing that the ability to derive meaning from data on patient populations is as valuable as direct patient care. The USCIS was persuaded, and our client’s case was approved.
