November is both Native American Heritage Month and also contains the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women 2022 on November 25

As health-care professionals and educators, it is important to learn about issues that may affect our patient and student populations and resources for action so that we can be BETTER health-care professionals and educators and live our iCare Values.

The National Crime Information Center reports that, in 2016, there were 5,712 reports of missing American Indian and Alaska Native women and girls, though the U.S. Department of Justice’s federal missing person database, NamUs, only logged 116 cases.” This documentary explores the reported and unreported cases in Utah and examines how the data could improve and what needs to change to keep women safe.

Join us for a group viewing and brown bag lunch about this important issue on November 17 from 12 to 1 p.m. in 1W 509.

The documentary is 26 minutes long, followed by a short talkback with Dr. Autumn Gallegos from Behavioral Health Partners.
