    New Research by Bushra Sabri

    In a newly-published research article, faculty member Bushra Sabri and a colleague examine multiple health issues commonly faced by Black survivors of violence. Through the systematic review, the researchers wanted to determine the efficacy of various strategies used in existing evidence-based multicomponent interventions on violence reduction, promotion of reproductive health, reduction in risk for HIV, reduction in levels of stress, and improvement in mental health. Check out the article to see the results.
