Violence Prevention & Trauma-Informed Care: Elective Epi 180.08

September 21, 2021
Wednedays, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

UCSF students, together with CARE ambassadors, have created an elective that addresses racism, colonization, patriarchy and all forms of oppression as root causes of structural and interpersonal violence and how healthcare providers can advance healing-centered, trauma-informed transformation.

This elective focuses on the interconnectedness of multiple forms of violence, the impact of trauma on the health of patients and communities, and how we can promote healing and resilience in clinical care. Featured speakers below. (Topics are subject to change based on speaker's availability.)
