The Awareness Issue 2022

October is both Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For that reason, this issue is dedicated to both. Inside you will find a story about one organization that helps survivors leave dangerous, volatile situations and one about new mammogram technology at a local hospital. Staff Writer Taylor O’Connor speaks with Domestic Violence Solutions about the importance of having a detailed exit plan and protection orders that can be legally enforced and Marian Regional Medical Center about the ways it’s making women more comfortable during breast cancer screenings and more.
