March is Women's History Month

In the United States, Women’s History Month traces its beginnings back to the first International Women’s Day in 1911. In February 1980, President Jimmy Carter issued a presidential proclamation declaring the week of March 8, 1980, as National Women’s History Week.
 
Since 1988, U.S. presidents have issued annual proclamations designating the month of March as Women’s History Month. If you have received a blood transfusion, radiation therapy, or experienced natural birth, you have benefitted from the many innovations created by women.

Opening lecture traumatizes audience

“Trauma-informed care is not about working with trauma,” said Dr. Carla Burke at the opening lecture for the fall academic year at the College. “It’s about creating an organizational culture and environment that is conducive to healing and does not re-traumatize people.
