UVa Today: Nursing School Receives Grant

August 8, 2012

UVa School of Nursing professor Linda Bullock joined us for this week's edition of UVa Today. She sat down with the Newsplex's Bob Beard to talk about a big grant for the school, meant to help fund new programs for certain women.

The UVa School of Nursing recently received a $4 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to design a tablet computer program to identify mothers and mothers-to-be who are at risk for domestic violence. Johns Hopkins University in Maryland also received the grant.

UVa hopes to use the tablet during home visits in rural Virginia to get more women to talk about domestic abuse and get treatment.
