Dr. Jackie's Point of V

Aug 11, 2022

Since the pandemic, there has been an increase in both youth violence and intimate partner violence. Communities living without adequate resources and those facing unfair treatment are more susceptible to all health issues, including violence.  On this episode, Dr. Jackie is joined by Grady Memorial Hospital trauma surgeons Dr. Randi Smith and Dr. Keneeshia Williams who sees firsthand the impact these crimes have on victims, their families and even the communities as a whole. They discuss:


  • Addressing violence as a public health problem 
  • Mental health impact of trauma
  • Current trends in youth violence
  • Increase in domestic violence during COVID
  • The impact of secondary or vicarious trauma
  • What communities can do to reduce violence
  • How you can be part of the change
