Clinical trials help lead to new treatments in many areas of Women's Health.

Domestic Violence Prevention 

Domestic violence is a term used to describe abusive behavior that occurs in intimate relationships. In most cases, the abuser or batterer is a man, and the victim is a woman. Female homicide victims are more than twice as likely to have been killed by an intimate partner than are male homicide victims. For more information visit our domestic violence page.
