SAVIR Webinar February 3 Sponsored by NCIPC

You are invited to join us for an injury prevention webinar on selecting, developing and conducting effective community injury prevention programmatic initiatives from a Trauma Center. This is the first in a series that is expected to pay particular attention to ACS verification standards for injury prevention. Speakers and the discussant will suggest effective ways to select programmatic areas for targeted interventions that have proven effective interventions. Participants will receive information on how to access resources related to program identification, implementation, scale up and impact assessment for injury prevention initiatives in communities served by trauma centers. The first webinar is free to all participants and is being jointly sponsored by the SAVIR Council of Centers and the CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC).
