Medical Support for Survivors of Sexual Assault

Survivors who choose not to receive a sexual assault forensic exam are still encouraged to seek medical support. Receiving medical attention immediately after an assault gives survivors the most options for protecting health. Medical attention helps determine if the survivor is physically injured needs care for sexually transmitted infections or possible pregnancy. Receiving medical attention does NOT require survivors to report the assault to the police, or follow through with the charges if filing a report. A Confidential Responder (336-278-3333) can accompany a survivor to the hospital or other medical facility office at any time.

Survivors at Elon University can seek confidential medical support at Student Health (336-278-7230).
