Description:

Overview:

This Student Showcase features two presentations from Safe States’ student members – Lars Almquist, a PhD student and Shannon Murphy, MPH student both studying in the Department of Health Services at the University of Washington School of Public Health.

 

Lars’ presentation “Hospital-Based Violence Intervention: Promises, Challenges and Opportunities to Break Cycles of Community Violence” will focus on how hospitals and trauma centers occupy unique and promising spaces to break cycles of violence. However, little is known about the effectiveness of existing and emerging hospital-based violence intervention models. In partnership with the Health Alliance for Violence Intervention, Lars’ research work in progress plans to identify which intervention activities are most effective at interrupting patterns of violence and how those findings may be replicated across diverse implementation contexts.

 

Shannon’s presentation “Preventing Violence and Unintentional Injuries in Seattle & King County, WA” will highlight how unintentional and violent injuries are a leading cause of death and hospitalization in King County, disproportionately affecting people who already suffer from racial and income inequalities. As a student intern with the Violence and Injury Prevention (VIP) unit at the Public Health Seattle-King County (PHSKC), Shannon assisted with policy and communication projects focused on bicycle, traffic, and water-related injuries. Her 2021 legislative bill reviews, community-based helmet and lifeguard resource guides, and assessment of drowning trends will be used to promote bicycle safety and drowning prevention strategies within the county.
