Description:

The theme for the 2010 ASTHO, NACCHO, & Safe States Alliance webcast series is “Policy Approaches to Injury & Violence Prevention.” The four webinars in this series are Webinar 1: Policies to Prevent Bullying in Schools; Webinar 2: Policies to Promote Injury-Free, Livable Communities; Webinar 3: State & National Policies to Promote Motor Vehicle Safety; Webinar 4: Policy Approaches to Injury Prevention:  Successes, Strategies, & the ASTHO Presidential Challenge.

 

Webinar 4 features three key leaders who are actively involved in national efforts to develop and support injury and violence prevention policies. The webcast offers valuable information about ASTHO’s 2009-2010 Presidential Challenge, which is designed to inspire state health officials to “study the data, assess their state, and consider adopting at least one policy strategy that could lessen the burden of preventable injury and death in their home state.” Participants also learned about past and present policy successes, as well as strategies for furthering these efforts in a variety of injury and violence prevention areas. Finally, participants were provided with updates from NCIPC regarding ongoing policy development activities being spearheaded by states and communities across the country.

 

Continuing education credits are offered for this training for Safe States members. These include credits for individuals who are Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) and Certified in Public Health (CPH)
