Special care, treatment available to sexual assault victims
from United States Army
Short- and long-term medical care and counseling are available to victims of sexual assault."We want every victim of sexual assault to receive health care. We encourage them. But it's up to that victim to decide," said Michele Barber, the Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention medical management program coordinator for the Army's Western Regional Medical Command. Barber's area of responsibility includes much of the western United States, which she manages from WRMC headquarters at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash. But she said training and care provided by hospital staffs and counselors is standard across the Army, not only for Soldiers, but for family members and all Department of Defense beneficiaries.
