Let’s Talk About Domestic Violence

It’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and here’s something you need to know: One in four women and one in nine men will experience physical violence from an intimate partner in their lifetime. Thanks to the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program launched earlier this year, residents of Hancock County are no longer forced to drive more than an hour to receive treatment and services after an assault. Since the SANE program launched, more than 8 patients have used the service.
