Dr. Herrero will present a work-in-progress report on an FRI Seed Grant-funded research project addressing recent trends of hospitalizations and deaths involving domestic violence. The study is intended to identify current trends and risk factors of domestic violence and target populations in California residents with, or at risk for, intimate partner violence. Specific goals include identifying target populations impacted by domestic violence mortality and requiring increased health services associated with domestic violence.
