She was at the hospital when the "Marathon Bombings" occurred and Brigham began receiving the bombing victims. Her closing sentences can resonate with each of us as healthcare providers.

Teen sexual assault: Where does the conversation start?
NPR
Project Director Barbara Spiegel taught students at the school boundaries and consent, healthy relationships and cyberbullying in media. Cyberbullying, in particular, plays a key role in these recent assault cases; social media provides the potential to amplify the reach of hurtful comments.

The manner in which the exaggerated portrayal of forensic science on crime television shows such as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation influences public perception.

2 protocols, 1 survivor: Building partnerships with colleges and universities to improve response to sexual violence on campus — May 20, 2013
Sexual Violence Justice Institute
This webinar will provide information on the federal requirements related to the campus response to sexual violence. Universities have their own investigative and judicial systems, and there are several federal policies that shape how they respond to a report of sexual assault. These systems and policies create campus-specific protocols that universities must follow in order to be in compliance with federal guidelines. This webinar will consider the questions: How can teams strengthen their relationship with local colleges/universities? What do teams need to know about the campus response protocol? How can universities and teams best integrate their protocols so that they best support the survivor?
