October is Domestic Violence Month. According to the National Coalition Against DV, Domestic Violence Awareness Month evolved from the first Day of Unity observed in October, 1981 by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The intent was to connect battered women’s advocates across the nation who were working to end violence against women and their children. The Day of Unity soon became a special week when a range of activities were conducted at the local, state, and national levels.

Domestic violence, is it in our community and how do we address it.
While it may appear that Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) do not have issues of domestic violence on their campuses they in fact do. There are many barriers that women of color may experience in seeking assistance. In 2011 U.S. Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights published The Dear College letter. This set the guidelines for addressing the sexual harassment of students, including sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. The Department of Justice Office of Violence Against has grants available to help assist colleges and universities to meet the mandates of the Dear Colleague letter. Tonight we will discuss how HBCU’s are addressing the issue of domestic violence and the resources for the survivor.
Life's Issues with Lloyd Rosen with his guest Theresa Santmann & Judy Flickinger:
Theresa Santmann’s story begins in 1976 when her husband was diagnosed with ALS. With two young children and mounting bills, Santmann needed to make a drastic change. She found a four-apartment rental property in Babylon, New York and turned it into an adult home where her husband, Jack, became her first patient. Santmann returned to school for nursing and began a new career that changed the lives of everyone around her. Her resourcefulness led her to becoming first woman in New York State to obtain an FHA-backed loan to build a 160-bed nursing home, with only a woman's name on the application. She operated one of the most successful nursing homes on Long Island, invented and patented a unique walker, became an airplane pilot, and so much more.
Judy Flickinger was a hospice nurse for the last twelve years of her forty two-year professional life as a registered nurse. During this time she recognized that a healthy spirit (who we are as a person) could make the difference between a miserable death and a positive, meaningful end-of-life experience for both the patients and their loved ones. Judy wrote "Spirit Matters: How to Remain Fully Alive with a Life-Limiting Illness", published by Tate Publishing & Enterprises, to pass on what she learned. This information is vitally important to persons faced with a life-limiting illness and everyone else, as well. In 2010 Judy received Central Florida’s “Woman of Hope” award for her book and her work with hospice.
