    About Sexual Assault

    The Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Program

    Sexual assault is any type of sexual contact that takes place without consent; it’s a crime of violence and control that can happen to anyone.

    The Massachusetts Department of Public Health's SANE program specially trains nurses and doctors to provide quality care and forensic evidence collection to sexual assault survivors. UHS is a designated SANE site, providing confidential, compassionate services for female, male and transgender survivors.

    Call UHS, (413) 577-5000, as soon as possible after an assault and before showering. More about SANE...
