MIHS Celebrates National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

November 30, 2016

On October 7th, the Empowering Families through a Dynamic Family Violence Prevention Program seminar was held in Phoenix.  National expert, Nancy Glass, presented to over 50 attendees from organizations and community groups throughout the county.  This event brought the community together to provide education, connections and mobilize partners to continue collaborating with family violence prevention efforts including our own Mariposa Wings to Safety (Mariposa) domestic violence program and the Refugee Women’s Health Clinic (RWHC).  

The seminar and the Mariposa and RWHC team are putting the pieces together to create a dynamic hospital-based family violence prevention program for diverse populations. 

Putting the pieces together for:

  • Intimate partner violence and gender-based violence programs/tools
  • Mariposa – Wings to Safety domestic violence program
  • Refugee Women’s Health Clinic
  • Maricopa Medical Center at MIHS and Family Health Centers across the County
  • Community Organizations

For more information contact Debra Welborn (Mariposa) at 602-344-1412 or Jeanne Nizigiyimana (RWHC) at 602-344-1445.
