Hot Topics in Practice Webinar: Reducing Injuries and Violence Through Policy

Hot Topics in Practice is a monthly webinar forum to discuss the issues currently affecting public health practice. Preventable injuries put a large burden on our families and communities. When public health informs policy, it gives us a tool to stop unintentional and violent injuries — from traffic, water, and/or firearms — before they happen. The August session of Hot Topics in Practice will share lessons learned from Public Health — Seattle & King County about injury and violence prevention policy when it comes to traffic, water, and firearm safety. During this one-hour webinar, Karyn Brownson and Tony Gomez, from the Violence and Injury Prevention Unit (VIP) at Public Health — Seattle & King County in King County, Washington, will provide a high-level overview of key policy planning, learning, and overall efforts. They will share key elements of injury and violence prevention work that other public health agencies can learn from and use as guides for their own policy efforts. This includes local, state,… Event interval: Single day event. Event Types: Lectures/Seminars. Event sponsors: Northwest Center for Public Health Practice. Wednesday, August 24, 2022, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM. Online webinar. For more info visit www.nwcphp.org.
