To help foster collaboration on violence and injury prevention, CDC’s Division of Injury Response (DIR) has developed several phConnect on-line collaboration web sites. phConnect is an online collaboration tool built to support geographically dispersed professionals working in the field of public health, including Violence and Injury Prevention. phConnect provides an environment for collaborative work and professional networking. By joining phConnect, you will be connected to people representing a variety of national, state, tribal and territorial agencies and organizations engaged in shaping the future of violence and injury prevention strategies. You can connect, learn, share expertise, solve problems, and take advantage of innovative new approaches through a variety of established Violence and Injury Prevention communities created to address specific violence and injury related topics.


This webinar is designed to provide those interested in violence and injury prevention an overview on how to use phConnect, how to establish their own communities, and introduce the Violence and Injury Prevention Exchange.
