Interpreting Toxicology and Alcohol/Drug Facilitated Sexual Assault
This webinar will be presented by Jennifer Sommers and Nicole Stahlmann
As a former sex crimes prosecutor with a scientific background (BS – Biology with Chemistry minor; MS – toxicology) my knowledge of the science involved in drug and alcohol facilitated sexual assault (DFSA / AFSA) is highly beneficial. I am generally regarded as a talented presenter regarding some of the salient facts about alcohol and drugs (and when DFSA may be indicated) in a highly understandable format.

A registered nurse with 10 years of clinical experience, Nicole has dedicated her career to forensic nursing.
