Connecting practitioners with researchers, the 2017 Injury and Violence Prevention Translation Symposium, “Action Through Collaboration,” will be held on Wednesday, May 3, 2017 at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
This unique, one-day event will provide a venue for researchers, practitioners, and other stakeholders to discuss their work, learn about new and ongoing initiatives, dialogue about emerging issues and opportunities, and identify strategies for working together to reduce injuries through application of evidence-based initiatives.
Participants — from health departments and other government agencies, hospitals, trauma centers, regional ICRCs, and community service and advocacy organizations— will have the opportunity to listen to and engage with expert panels from the ICRC Translation Network Initiative and Cure Violence, as well as Dr. Thomas A. Burke, professor and former Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Science Advisor and Deputy Assistant Administrator of the EPA’s Office of Research and Development. Participants are also encouraged to submit posters or other promotional materials reflecting their work and/or organization for display at the Symposium.
A light breakfast, accompanied by poster discussions and networking will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. Lunch will be served. To learn more about the Symposium, please visit http://www.jhsph.edu/translationsymposium.
