(PUBLIC NEWS SERVICE) – A new statewide initiative aims to help connect domestic-violence survivors with medical providers, with a focus on treating traumatic brain injury. Rachel Ramirez, founder the Ohio Domestic Violence Network’s Center on Partner-Inflicted Brain Injury, said survivors often experience severe violence aimed directly at the head, neck and face. But there’s been a longstanding gap in accessing the right medical services when individuals come into shelters. She said a portion of the initiative’s more than $6-million dollars in funding will be used to pay for treatment.
