Episode 10: Dispelling Myths About Domestic Violence
During the month of October, we have cast a light on domestic violence to bring awareness and share information about this critical topic. As the month comes to a close, we present a special Tim Talk featuring Tricia Mercer, system director for Medical Group Practice Management and Ann-Marie Williams, associate vice president of Patient Care Services at Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center—both senior leaders of Northern Light Health as well as domestic violence survivors. We thank both Tricia and Ann Marie for both courageously coming forward to share their story as well as dispel some of the myths and erase some of the stigma surrounding domestic violence. Also, joining Tim, Tricia, and Ann-Marie is Amanda Cost, facilitative director at Partners for Peace, a domestic violence prevention organization serving Penobscot and Piscataquis Counties.
