The Sexual Assault Kit Initiative (SAKI) Training and Technical Assistance (TTA) Team is continuing their new interview series, Meet the SAKI Experts! This series of brief interviews will highlight SAKI TTA’s partners and consultants and their roles on the SAKI project. During each event, a member of the SAKI TTA Team will conduct a virtual interview with the featured subject matter expert. Questions will showcase their specific expertise, background, and role on the SAKI project, as well as what trainings and resources the experts find particularly useful within the SAKI project.
The third installment in the series will feature Dr. Rebecca Campbell from Michigan State University (MSU). Since SAKI began in 2015, MSU has served as a key research partner to the SAKI TTA Team by collaborating on trainings, presentations, webinars, and resource briefs. Dr. Campbell has over two decades of experience in community-based research on violence against women and children, with an emphasis on sexual assault. Her research examines how contact with the legal and medical systems affects adult, adolescent, and pediatric victims’ psychological and physical health.
