WHAT: Conference
WHERE: Hilton Los Angeles Airport 5711 W. Century Blvd. Los Angeles, CA
INFORMATION: This year’s Statewide Conference,Connecting the Dots: Domestic Violence, Health & Well-beingwill explore how domestic violence impacts the health and well-being of survivors, their families and advocates. Domestic violence advocates and healthcare providers are natural partners in efforts to provide safety for survivors. Survivors who access domestic violence services can explore all options available in their community, including the health care providers they visit both for treatment of injuries and routine medical care. Healthcare screening, treatment, preventive services and safety planning can help support healing and prevent future incidents of domestic violence. This conference is an opportunity for all professionals working to end domestic violence to network, build relationships and share reciprocal expertise to strengthen our collective efforts. We anticipate approximately 350 participants will attend the conference, representing a wide range of disciplines. *Proposals that include culturally and linguistically relevant strategies to advance services to traditionally underserved and un-served communities will be given special consideration.
