Domestic Violence in the KP Workplace: Letter from a Physician Survivor

Domestic Violence in the KP Workplace: Letter from a Physician Survivor

Marta Moreno, MD

Winter 2005 - Volume 9 Number 1

Putting this story on paper has been one of the hardest things I have ever done. I'm a doctor in Internal Medicine at a Kaiser Permanente (KP) Northern California facility, where I've been for almost 15 years. My story began with my father, who was an abuser. I put an end to my story of abuse when my husband hurt me in front of my children, although he claims it was inadvertent. I hope to break the cycle.
