Imperfect Storm: Lessons Learned from a Traumatic Year

The 2021 Global Health Summit on Violence and Abuse provides a collegial environment for participants to have a virtual front row seat to the latest science and practice in violence and abuse treatment and prevention from a very traumatic 2020.
