This informational session — hosted by the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), and facilitated by the Government Innovators Network — was designed to help potential applicants learn more about the OVC solicitation, “Sexual Assault Forensic Medical Examination Telemedicine Center: An Innovative Pilot Project.”
The goal of this project is to develop a live 24-hour telemedicine center to help Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANEs) and other forensic medical examiners collect evidence from a victim of sexual assault. The recipient of this $3.5 million award will issue a separate solicitation, in partnership with OVC, to set up the four pilot sites that will use cutting-edge audiovisual technology to walk a health-care provider through a forensic medical examination. Register for this Webinar to learn more about the solicitation and OVC’s and NIJ’s ultimate goal of creating a national center that serves all jurisdictions on a fee-for-service basis.
On the panel:
- Kristina Rose – Deputy Director of the National Institute of Justice
- Marnie Shiels – Attorney Advisor to the Office for Victims of Crime
