National Stalking Awareness Month: Let’s Talk About It

NEOMED students, faculty, and staff are invited to join the Title IX Office and Townhall II for information about stalking during National Stalking Awareness Month. Inola Howe will discuss what stalking is and what it looks like, specifically on college campuses and elsewhere. She will also discuss the signs of stalking behavior, so you can be more aware and stay safe before, during, and after a stalking incident has begun. The first 20 to RSVP will have lunch on us!
