Noel Ramirez, DBH, MPH, MSW, LCSW, BCD

Adjunct Professor

I am a Philadelphia based licensed clinical social worker and public health professional. Informed by Immigrant-Filipino parents who love through a sense of home, a chosen Queer family who resist subjugation, and a public health community that seeks to honor social and environmental context.  My approach to my work is relational, inter-subjective, and grounded in love, honor, and respect.

I received my graduate training in social work from the University of Pennsylvania and my graduate public health training from Drexel University. I have completed my Doctorate in Behavioral Health from Arizona State University and focused my academic work in developing programing on patient-centered medical homes, integrated-health, recovery-oriented primary care, and body-positive behavioral interventions. I am a certified clinical anxiety treatment professional and have a certificate in Clinical Social Work Supervision.  

Currently, I am a behavioral health consultant at a local FQHC, maintain a private practice focusing on Gay/Bisexual/Queer Men's mental health and body image, and provide clinical supervision to associate level social workers. I have been teaching at WCUPA MSW Program (Philadelphia Campus) since Fall of 2014 and am honored to be working students to help find their social work voices.
