Public Health Leadership for Violence Prevention Webinar

From infants to the elderly, violence affects people in all stages of life. Each year, more than 50,000 violence-related deaths are reported in the United States. The number of violent deaths tells only part of the story. Many more survive violence and are left with permanent physical and emotional scars. Violence also erodes communities by reducing productivity, decreasing property values, and disrupting social services.
To address these issues, a quarterly webinar series has been developed to showcase violence prevention efforts implemented through public health infrastructure. The goal of this series is to highlight the importance of violence prevention as a public health priority.
You are invited to participate in the first webinar which will focus on public health leadership for violence prevention. Participants will have the opportunity to hear public health leaders from across the country discuss the important role that public health agencies play in improving the health of communities by preventing violence. This session will:
• Emphasize violence prevention and its relationship to other public health issues;
• Highlight violence prevention efforts within state and local health systems; and
• Describe the need for public health infrastructure and partnership engagement.
 

Speakers include:
• Dr. Judy Monroe, Deputy Director, Office for State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support, CDC
• Dr. Paul Halverson, President, Association for State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO)
• Ms. Carol Moehrle, President, National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO)
• Dr. Georges Benjamin, Executive Director, American Public Health Association (APHA)
• Ms. Amber Williams, Executive Director, Safe States Alliance

The webinar will be facilitated by Dr. Rodney Hammond, Director, Division of Violence Prevention, CDC

Description: 

People involved in prevention rarely have an opportunity to discuss the impact of emerging research on their work. Prevention Connection Reading Clubs meetings provide a way for these people to meet online and have these discussions. These small, one hour meetings meetings happen over an open phone line, with the web conference used as a common way to view the reading and other materials.

The next club meetings will discuss "Identifying Common Practices in Community-Based Rape Prevention Programs" by Stephanie M.Townsend and Rebecca Campbell.* This paper touches on elements of rape prevention education program design, curriculum selection, and evaluation. These are the intended themes of the meetings, though participants may take the conversation in many different directions. These meetings will be held on:

  • Monday, April 27, 11 AM Pacific / 2 PM Eastern
  • Thursday, April 30, 11 AM Pacific / 2 PM Eastern

Reproductive Coercion and Partner Violence: A New Study on Unintended Pregnancies
Presented by Elizabeth Miller and Rebecca Levenson
 

A recent study by researchers from UC Davis School of Medicine and Harvard School of Public Health in collaboration with the Family Violence Prevention Fund sheds light on a little-recognized form of abuse in which men use coercion and birth control sabotage to get a female partner pregnant (when she doesn’t want to be) and attempt to control the outcomes of the pregnancy. Reproductive coercion is common in relationships where women experience physical or sexual partner violence. Joining us are author Elizabeth Miller, an assistant professor of Pediatrics in the UC Davis School of Medicine and practitioner at UC Davis Children’s Hospital and Rebecca Levenson, Senior Policy Analyst at the Family Violence Prevention Fund, who will discuss the findings of their study and the implications for prevention and intervention efforts.
