We normally share posts that offer health information for everyday women, but this news was too good not to share. We at the Office on Women's Health are excited to support the evolution of a health system that truly cares for survivors of interpersonal violence. We look forward to the outcomes of this research.

For most of my federal career, portraits of Harriet Tubman and Ida B. Wells have hung on my wall. These "s/heroes" remind me that freedom is precious and vulnerable populations need targeted attention, protection, and assistance. I am honored to work with abolitionists in the public and private sectors to end human trafficking, also known as modern-day slavery.
