Elected officials from throughout the region gathered in Alexandria’s West End May 8 to celebrate the opening of two new Inova Health System community health clinics that will focus on women’s health and medical evaluations for sexual assault and human trafficking survivors. According to Alexandria Gazette Paket, "The new Inova Cares Clinic for Women will provide obstetrics and gynecological services for uninsured women. Additionally, a new Inova Ewing Forensic Assessment and Consultation Teams department (FACT) will provide expert medical evaluations and forensic evidence collection for survivors of human trafficking, sexual assault, child abuse and domestic violence. Both clinics are located next to the current Inova Cares Clinic for Families and Inova Transitional Services at 4700 King Street." As per Alexandria Gazette Paket, "Clinical technician Dana Ismail, who was born and raised in Libya, became a patient of the Inova Cares Clinic for Women when she was diagnosed with endometriosis and subsequently needed surgery. “The doctors went above and beyond to manage my health and to ensure I had a strong support system to help with the recovery process,” said Ismail, who was a guest speaker at the event. “The experience changed my life, leading me to a career in healthcare and now as a volunteer at the clinic in Falls Church. I gained a unique perspective into the field of women’s health and the need for services for our underserved populations."
