Centering Survivors – Domestic Violence Awareness
On October 19, partnered with YWCA of Northwest Indiana, Edgewater Health will host “Centering Survivors” with our very own Dr. Dewnzar Howard-Jones serving as the speaker for the evening. During the presentation, Dr. Howard-Jones will address the health effects associated with violent occurrences and the trauma many victims experience.
October 17-22 is Week Without Violence, a nationally recognized campaign to end violence against women and girls. Violence in its many forms can affect the health of the individuals targeted, the perpetrators and the communities in which both reside. It is important to bring domestic violence to the forefront to raise awareness, advocate for change and encourage victims to speak out for help!
