Congratulations to Dr. Thea James, Salma Bibi, Breanne Langlois, Elizabeth Dugan, and Patty Mitchell for their publication in Academic Emergency Medicine on client experiences and the perceived effect of the Violence Intervention Advocacy Program (VIAP) at Boston Medical Center.

The authors note that VIAP participants “described positive, life-changing behaviors on their journey to healing through connections to caring, supportive adults.”

VIAP is a violence intervention program based out of the BMC Emergency Department that offers services and support to victims of violence and their families. Learn more about VIAPĀ here.
