TCFV Marks October 9th Health Cares About Domestic Violence Day (HCADV Day)

Austin, Texas – October 8, 2013 – The Texas Council on Family Violence (TCFV), the Verizon Foundation and the Women’s Health and the Family Planning Association of Texas today are for the first time live streaming an important women’s health care event to Texans.  The Health Cares About Domestic Violence Day is a public forum and will provide training from leaders in domestic violence and women’s health care on the health effects of intimate partner violence.

The discussion will explore how health care professionals can assist people they come in contact with who they believe are victims of domestic violence, discussions on partnerships between women’s health providers and domestic violence advocates.  A panel will also discuss the implications of intimate partner violence on teen pregnancy prevention, HIV/AIDS Services, and Maternal/Child Health.

The event is Wednesday October 9th at 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center and will be live streaming at: http://www.livestream.com/tcfv

“Texas has one of the highest rates of uninsured people,” said Gloria A. Terry, President of the Texas Council on Family Violence.  “The Center for Disease Control has identified that intimate partner violence affects health in many ways. Women who have been victimized by an intimate partner and children raised in violent households are more likely to experience a wide array of physical and mental health conditions,” said Terry.

Verizon is a national leader in the education and prevention of domestic violence. Today, the company joined the event to encourage more businesses to get involved in the prevention of domestic violence.

“Raising awareness of domestic violence and aiding in its prevention is a priority issue for Verizon,” said David Russell, Verizon Vice President of External Affairs. “Verizon is proud to partner with the Texas Council on Family and lend our voice to raise awareness about the health implications of domestic violence to a wider audience in an effort to save lives.”

The Texas Council on Family Violence has been advocating for victims of domestic violence for 35 years.  As one of the largest domestic violence coalitions in the nation, we lead efforts to end family violence at the statewide level.  Our partners include domestic violence shelters across the state.
