Helia Hosseini youngest research scientist

Since 1983, April has been designated Child Abuse Prevention Month, an annual observance in the United States dedicated to raising awareness and preventing child abuse. Bioengineering graduate student Helia Hosseini knows firsthand how important it is to use one’s voice to uplift others. Growing up in Iran, she experienced verbal abuse when she was 10 years old. She also remembers friends who were abused either verbally or physically by parents or other adults in their lives.
