At Glamour‘s Women of the Year Summit in New York City, former vice president Joe Biden detailed an ambitious initiative he’s developing with Lady Gaga: creating trauma centers for victims of physical and emotional abuse.

“Women who are abused end up having long-term physical and physiological problems … We finally are recognizing the long-term impacts,” Biden said, specifying that women should be able to receive long-term help at such centers. “It’s the next great frontier I want to be part of.”

Biden and Gaga are in the early stages of planning the trauma center initiative, Entertainment Weeklyreports. A rep for Gaga did not immediately reply to a request for more information.
