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 3 focuses on motor vehicle safety. This webcast featured key leaders who are actively involved in shaping state and national policies to promote motor vehicle safety. The webcast offered participants valuable information about existing motor vehicle-related policies, including primary seat belt laws, impaired driving laws (e.g., ignition interlock devices, DUI, sobriety checkpoints, etc.), and laws to protect teen drivers. Participants also learned resources and strategies to help them become more involved in the development and advocacy of these policies at the state and national level.

 

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)
