25 Years of FEAP

Twenty-five years ago the Faculty and Employee Assistance Program began with a .5 Licensed Clinical Social Worker hired into the UVAHS Department of Social Work. Alan Cohn, LCSW, CEAP, BCD designed this EAP which initially served the medical center then later expanded to take care of the faculty and staff of the University. The name changed to FEAP to demonstrate faculty was included in the service catchment and we have not looked back since.
