November 11, 2013

Cathy Plourde, director of Add Verb Productions, and Sue St. Pierre, DO, course director in the College of Osteopathic Medicine, presented at the 29th Annual Meeting of the Maine Public Health Association in October.

Plourde and St. Pierre presented video segments that demonstrated their work in developing a training video to be used in the health care sector for addressing domestic violence as a health factor in patients and clients.

Their work, which was funded by the Bingham Program, will be released for wider use in the coming months and features video content to help primary care providers work with patients in exam rooms to recognize and speak about violence and health.

The training videos will also be made available on UNE Digital Commons.  The scenes were performed by professional and community actors as well as UNE staff, faculty and students.
