This week: Intimate partner violence, lessons from the battlefield, Kaposi’s sarcoma

Violence between intimate partners is more common than you might think, says social worker Loren Cunningham, from Vera House in Syracuse, an agency devoted to preventing, responding to and helping to end domestic and sexual violence and other forms of abuse.

She cites statistics showing up to 36 percent of women and 28 percent of men have experienced intimate partner violence, which could include physical violence, rape, stalking or other aggressions. She joins Ginnie Cronin, PhD, director of advanced practice nursing at Le Moyne College, to discuss the dynamics of intimate partner violence and the role of medical professionals in helping to identify people who are affected on this week’s “HealthLink on Air.”

Also on the show: research that may improve the lives of people with Kaposi's sarcoma, plus some medical lessons that have been learned from the battlefield.
