Abstract

LETTER tephen H. Gorin recently retired from his position as the longest-serving Editor-in- S Chief in Health & Social Work’s history. Steve’s longevity demonstrated that he is a man for all seasons. He guided the journal through the last years of the Bush administration during its rejec- tion of the Children’s Health Insurance Program expansions, through better days during the success- ful fight for Obamacare, and during the first months of the Trump administration when a generation of health policy progress was placed in jeopardy. His contributions to the fields of health policy and medical social work practice go beyond the yeoman’s work he did for more than a decade for this journal and his three decades in the classroom. He coauthored the first textbook on health care ever written by social workers for social workers (Health Care Policy and Practice), and rumor has it that he is editing its fifth edition now. Steve and I became fast friends starting from our first day of orientation as public assistance casework- ers for the Rhode Island Department of Social and Rehabilitative Services in January 1970, and our careers followed remarkably similar trajectories. We both left our home state of Rhode Island by the mid-1970s to pursue MSWs, relocated multi- ple times as is often the case for academics, and chose health policy as our career’s focus. We have stayed in touch, collaborated on projects including a few manuscripts published in this journal, and now we are both recently retired. For nearly a half century of friendship, for ser- vice to this journal and the social work commu- nity, and for your constant fight on behalf of America’s dispossessed, thanks, Steve.
