Gender-Based Violence Prevention and Intervention Programs: Dissemination of Tools and Resources to Support Survivors Webinar
Date and Time– November 17, 2021, 03:00 PM EST
Join ORWH for the next installment of the of the Understudied, Underrepresented, and Underreported (U3) Women’s Health Lecture Series, titled “Gender-Based Violence Prevention and Intervention Programs: Dissemination of Tools and Resources to Support Survivors.” Through this lecture series—which focuses on populations of women that are understudied, underrepresented, and underreported in biomedical science—ORWH stimulates interest in the complex issues affecting the health of women, such as influences of community attributes on health. This webinar will provide a forum to both increase awareness of and discuss sustainable strategies for integrating gender-based violence prevention/intervention services into diverse care settings.
This virtual event will feature presentations by two panelists, Nancy E. Glass, Ph.D., M.P.H., M.S., RN, and Annjeanette Belcourt, Ph.D. Dr. Glass will give a presentation on myPlan, an evidence-based mobile application for survivors of violence to plan and take action. She has conducted research to improve health systems’ identification of and response to survivors of gender-based violence. Dr. Belcourt will present on the topic of Indigenous women’s survivorship and scholarship in the context of social determinants of health. She has worked extensively in Indigenous communities, applying innovative approaches to addressing mental health disparities, treating post-traumatic stress symptoms, and strengthening resilience with culturally relevant interventions.
ORWH’s U3 Administrative Supplement Program funds interdisciplinary research to address the influences of sex and gender on health at the intersection of social determinants, such as housing stability, racism, violence, socioeconomic status, and educational status.
