Healing After Sexual Assault

Social and political issues that impact our sexual and reproductive health produced by WERU in collaboration with Mabel Wadsworth Center –

In this episode, we are discussing the #metoo movement from the perspective of healing. With us is Gail Foss, RN and Licensed Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor, we talk about how she helps women and men heal after experiencing sexual violence. In the interview, Gail opens up about her own experience and tells us a little bit about what needs to be done to change our culture so this doesn’t continue to happen.

In the “Ask Mabel” segment we learn about the Mirena IUD.

There has always been something special about maple snow. The delicate wild flavor of the maple syrup is not masked by a toasty pancake, nor hidden by a pasty pile of oats. Snow adds almost no flavor to compete with the maple—assuming you stick with the fresh pure white stuff. Although our changing climate has complicated the timing of the harvest from year to year, late February and early March is typically the season for tapping maple trees, boiling down sap, and making perfection by the jugful.
