Schlup elected to national perinatal social workers board
COLUMBIA, Mo. — Dasi Schlup, M.S.W., L.C.S.W., social worker at Columbia Regional Hospital, has been elected to the board of directors of the National Association of Perinatal Social Workers. Schlup began serving a two-year term June 1.
As a board member, Schlup will assist the association in setting standards of practice for perinatal social work around the country. In addition to her seat on the board of directors, she is an active member of the organization’s social action committee and standards committee.
Schlup works in the neonatal intensive care unit at Children’s Hospital and with maternal fetal medicine patients at Columbia Regional Hospital. She has more than 30 years of experience as a social worker, providing social, emotional and psychological support to individuals and families from pregnancy through the infant’s first year of life. Schlup sees her election as a way to share some of the hospital’s best practices with colleagues around the country.
“My service with this national organization will highlight perinatal social work at University of Missouri Health Care and the many progressive practices in social work that we are following in the neonatal intensive care unit at Children’s Hospital,” Schlup said.
The National Association of Perinatal Social Workers was incorporated in 1980. In addition to establishing practice standards for perinatal social work, the association is involved in social action issues and works to promote excellence in perinatal social work to maximize healthy outcomes for babies and families.
