Domestic abuse research points to long-term health risks

Findings from work led by EQUIP team members Colleen Varcoe, Marilyn Ford-Gilboe, and Nadine Wathen were recently highlighted in the Thunderbird (a student publication of the Graduate School of Journalism at University of British Columbia).

The article, available here, outlines some research findings from the Women’s Health Effects Study, which considered the long-term mental and physical health effects of intimate partner violence.
