The Children’s Safety Network (CSN) and the Network for Public Health Law (NPHL) jointly announce the launch of a new webinar series titled “Advancing Injury Prevention through Policy.” A total of four webinars will be held from November 2012 through May 2013. Each session will feature one injury topic and when appropriate, will include an update on which states currently have laws or policies related to that topic, state experience in gaining passage and implementing the law, and the experience of evaluating the effectiveness of the law.
Presenters will also discuss the challenges faced by state health department injury prevention staff including prohibitions on involvement in promoting enactment of policies, lack of research on effectiveness of injury prevention laws, lack of funds for implementation of legislation; and, how to work with the opposition.
The first session is scheduled for Thursday, November 15, 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. EST. “Bullying Prevention Legislation: Focus on LGBT Youth” will be presented by Cristina Meneses, JD, MS, Senior Staff Attorney, The Network, Eastern Region, The University of Maryland Francis Carey School of Law and Ellen Schmidt, Assistant Director, Children’s Safety Network, Education Development Center.
