Dr. Katherine Scafide, associate professor of Nursing, spoke to NBC Nightly News about her research on Alternate Light Sources (ALS). The research helps identify hard-to-see bruising in darker skin tones, where it may otherwise be difficult or impossible to detect.

"By relying just on our eyes to see a bruise, unfortunately, we are creating a disparity in how we are able to detect injuries across diverse populations that can lead to differences in legal outcomes," said Scafide.
