In Texas, there were nearly 200,000 family and dating violence incidents in 2016. In this Blue Promise, we dig into our data to determine the impact of this type of violence on health.
What are the costs associated with family violence and what can we do as a society to minimize the damage? Leanne Metcalfe, Ph.D., Senior Director of Collaborative Research at BCBSTX, Jan Langbein, CEO of Genesis Women's Shelter and Support, and co-host Dr. Esteban Lopez, BCBSTX Chief Medical Officer, discuss the family violence problem and possible solutions in this Blue Promise. You can listen to the complete discussion in podcast form on Apple Podcasts and SoundCloud.
