The Justice Center at Albany Law School will expand its impact beyond providing law students with hands-on, timely training. 

Professor Hayat Bearat, Director of the Family Violence Litigation Clinic, along with Danielle Salazar ’23, Chloe Ross ’23, and Taylor Bacon ’23 will co-present to the Albany Medical College student, faculty and leadership community “Intimate Partner Violence: The Role of the Physician” on Wednesday, April 13 at 7 p.m.

The presentation is part of AMC’s Community Grand Rounds series which are student-led and student-organized meetings where evidence-based topics (or aspects of a topic) are reviewed with presentations from students followed by faculty commentary.

“Since medical students and professionals work with survivors of domestic violence who come in for medical attention, having sensitivity to domestic violence, asking the right questions, and screening for various health risks can help save lives of some of the patients they see,” said Bearat.

The presentations will be presented on Webex. More information visit: https://www.amc.edu/academic/undergraduate/amc-community-grand-rounds.cfm

The presentation is just the latest outreach from the Justice Center this spring as students, faculty, and staff have also supported Third District Crawford Hearing Training beyond the regular workload with clients throughout the Capital District this academic year.
