LVMAC Tidbit: Suffering from Military Sexual Trauma?

Published by LVMAC on

Lehigh Valley Health Network Wishes to Help

The Veteran Health Program of Lehigh Valley Hospital Network (LVHN) has been conducting focus groups with women veterans and service members who experienced military sexual trauma (MST). The intent of these focus groups is to learn how MST has affected their healthcare.

On 10 February beginning at 5:30 p.m., the final focus group will be held at Moravian College’s Reeves Library on the main campus.

Questions such as “Has the experience been a barrier to health care preventive screenings?”, “Are your providers aware of your veteran/military status?”, “Are they knowledgable and aware of your military experience?”, etc. will be asked.

While the information obtained from the focus groups will assist in the development of educational guides for women veterans and their healthcare providers, all personal information will remain confidential.

Phone interviews are also possible if the individual is unable to attend this last group meeting or feels uncomfortable discussing this topic in a group setting.

For more information, questions and to RSVP, please contact Marilyn Kelly-Cavotta, email:, Tel: 610-861-1363.
