LMU-DCOM SOMA and SaGE Club Domestic Violence Awareness PSA, Small Group Discussion, and Brown Bag Lunch - Student Osteopathic Medical Association

LMU-DCOM SOMA and SaGE Club Domestic Violence Awareness PSA, Small Group Discussion, and Brown Bag Lunch

October was Domestic Violence Awareness month, and LMU-DCOM SOMA in coordination with the Social and Gender Equality club (SaGE) hosted a variety of events in support of those survivors and victims of domestic violence. We had a PSA table with local resources, including shelters, counseling, information regarding signs of abuse/what to do about it, and  information regarding other community events in October for Domestic Violence Awareness. We also held a small group discussion and brown bag lunch where survivors shared their stories and discussed their experiences, as well as LMU counselors and local police, providing insight to domestic violence in the local community. The small group discussion was very powerful and really engaged students and demonstrated the support that is present at LMU-DCOM from peers, faculty, and local law enforcement. Below is a photo of members of the class wearing purple to support Domestic Violence Awareness on National #PurpleThursday
