Some of the top influencers among pediatricians join together to discuss "The Hunting Ground"-- a searing expose about the epidemic of sexual assaults on college campuses created by an Academy Award nominated and Emmy winning filmmaking team.
A quarter of all women attending one of 27 universities are victims of sexual assault or misconduct due to physical force, threat of force, or incapacitation, but only a tiny number of these women report the crimes. Men are affected too – with a 5% victimization rate.
Join the conversation and raise awareness among pediatricians, parents, and kids going off to school. By joining this hangout you will help jump start a much needed national conversation.
