South Carolina Office for Healthcare Workforce Welcomes Kathie Greenberg


The South Carolina Office for Healthcare Workforce (SCOHW) welcomed Kathie Greenberg in October as Senior Research Associate. Kathie joins that team after previously serving as an associate professor at the College at Old Westbury. The college is located just outside the New York City area and is the most diverse of the 64-campus State University system. It was founded in 1972, with a mission built on a commitment to addressing areas of social injustice and meeting the educational needs of underserved and underrepresented students.  At Old Westbury, Kathie specialized in the teaching of research methods and statistics. Her research was focused on assessing the effectiveness of innovative approaches to teaching, with emphasis on the development and testing of grading methods that are fair and objective, and promote learning rather than just critique.

Kathie has a PhD in experimental psychology and a Master’s degree in general psychology from Adelphi University and received her Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Queens College, City University of New York.

Kathie is thrilled to be a part of SC AHEC and (SCOHW), where she can continue to work toward serving the greater good among colleagues who seek to do the same. In her free time, she enjoys reading, watching classic movies, bike-riding, and spending time with her family.  Cooking… not so much.

Welcome, Kathie! She can be reached at greenbek@musc.edu or 843-792-8995.

Here are some brief highlights: Lowcountry AHEC worked with longtime instructor Francine Muscarella, LMSW, LCSW, to offer her already scheduled courses The Art of Leading and Are You Running Out of Time? as webinars to professionals statewide. The transition allowed a multidisciplinary group of attendees to still participate in learning opportunities without leaving their homes. “Huge thanks and shout out,” remarked one attendee, “to all those involved to take this from an in-person class to transition it on short notice to a webinar.” Likewise, Mid-Carolina AHEC cancelled all in-p
