Bayhealth is congratulating Dawn Culp, MSN, RN, SANE-A, SANE-P, FNE, DV and gang consultant on her recent appointment to the Delaware Violence Coordinating Council, as medical liaison.
The DVCC gathers domestic violence service providers and members of local and state government organizations to reduce the occurrence of domestic violence and abuse in all its forms.
Culp has been involved in several capacities with DVCC since 2001. She is currently a co-chair of the medical and executive subcommittees. She has been involved with sexual assault community resource development programs in Delaware since the 90s, and collaborates with many state and local organizations to train, educate, and support personnel who work with sexual assault victims.
One of Culp's most important accomplishments was working with law enforcement to improve and expand the evidence collection procedure for rape victims.
In addition to working as a sexual assault nurse examiner (SANE) in Bayhealth's three emergency departments, Culp and her staff of SANE forensic nurses educate the community through seminars at high schools, daycare centers, Delaware State University, and employers such as Dover Air Force Base.
