Beyond Silos features health care and advocacy leaders who are pioneering advancements in cross-sector collaboration between the health and domestic violence (DV) sectors to promote prevention and early identification of DV; improve the safety net for survivors and their health needs; and promote systems change across Los Angeles in a way that better addresses DV as a public health issue.
