  • Violence Against Women: Changing Perspective - During the months of March and April 2019, EHSL focused its programming on Violence Against Women – Changing Perspective. Throughout these two months EHSL hosted several events to bring attention to the reality of violence against women in our community through different perspectives. An exhibit from the National Library of Medicine focused on the history of domestic violence and the role of nurses making a difference. There was an opportunity to participate in creating a gallery of t-shirts as evidence of the epidemic of violence against women; a lecture showed how virtual reality is being used to combat domestic violence by putting the perpetrator in the role of the victim; an opportunity was available to see how virtual reality is changing the perspective in many disciplines; and a panel presentation was given by local experts who discussed violence against women in our community.   These resources are described and linked here:
