RVA was happy to participate and we look forward to future health forums! I wanted to point out that Clariza Saint George is based in Austin at our Austin Community Satellite Office at 4909 W. Division. We provide medical and legal advocacy services out of that office, as well as individual counseling and support groups for survivors of sexual violence and prevention education.
