The Correlations Between Postpartum Depression, Intimate
Partner Violence, and Substance Abuse
My hypothesis is that women who are going through postpartum
depression are also suffering from Intimate Partner Violence
(IPV), which produces a higher rate of alcohol and substance abuse. This study
could potentially open an eye for different mothers undergoing postpartum
depression and increase the help that is needed to steer away from substance
and alcohol abuse while tackling IPV.
Human Trafficking by the Numbers
My public service announcement will highlight the frequency and
total numbers of persons who are victims of human trafficking.
It will include information on punishment for committing human
trafficking from a criminal justice perspective.
Attractiveness of E-Cigarettes
Electronic cigarettes are devices that allow users to inhale nicotine
in the form of different flavored juices. E-cigarettes are popular
amongst the younger population, especially college students.
The unique flavored juices, social acceptability, and perception as being less
harmful than conventional cigarettes are reasons as to why e-cigarettes are
popular. This study surveyed Gwynedd Mercy University students about their
use of e-cigarettes.
In the United States, those who are incarcerated have the right to
healthcare under the 8th Amendment, protecting them from cruel
and unusual punishment. Denying a person’s healthcare would be
considered inhumane but through the prison system, a prisoner’s care is paid for
by taxpayers. Therefore, the question asked of participants is what the public
believes is a basic human right, versus what care a criminal should be receiving.

This poster is a public service announcement infographic that
shows the course of events during human trafficking, where it
happens, and what to look out for. Human trafficking has come
to light in recent decades; however, this is still an epidemic at large, affecting
millions across the world.
