Health Cares About Domestic Violence Day
Health Cares About Domestic Violence Day is a nationally recognized day that takes place annually on the second Wednesday of October. Sponsored by FUTURES, the awareness-raising day aims to reach members of the healthcare and advocacy communities to offer education about the critical importance of universal education to promote healthy relationships, address the health impact of abuse and offer warm referrals to domestic violence advocates. VIP will be going out and dropping off treats to our health care partners and other health care professionals in our Wayne and Pike counties. VIP does regular training with our health care professionals, so this day for VIP is all about honoring them in the work they do with domestic violence victims and survivors.
