On 26 June 2014, CVT staff, volunteers and board members gathered in the St. Paul Healing Center with survivors of torture to commemorate the anniversary of the Convention Against Torture. Rosa Garcia-Peltoniemi, Ph.D., L.P., Senior Consulting Clinician, offered these remarks to honor all survivors.

We are honored to observe the United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture at our St. Paul Healing Center, where a community of providers, interpreters, and volunteers help heal and support survivors in rebuilding their lives.

Part III of our conversation with Steve Miles and Rosa Garcia-Peltoniemi about doctors and torture. In this final segment, Steve and Rosa discuss the state of accountability in the United States and lack of awareness among health care providers about torture experiences of their patients.
