Wake County Childhood Injury/Violence Prevention Networking Event (June 18)

Join us for the 2nd Annual Wake County Childhood Injury and Violence Prevention Networking Event!  It will take place on Thursday, June 18, from 8:30 am to 12:00 pm at the Local Government Federal Credit Union Conference Center (323 W. Jones St.) in downtown Raleigh.

The event is the official launch of the Skills & Knowledge for Injury Prevention Partners (SKIPP) – supported by the John Rex Endowment.  The SKIPP Project will provide networking and training opportunities to injury and violence prevention practitioners who serve children and youth in Wake County.

Keynote speaker Alan Dellapenna, Jr., is the Injury and Violence Prevention Branch Head of the NC Division of Public Health.  He will share insights on how the field of injury and violence prevention has grown over the years, as well as discussing statewide efforts on the issue.  Break-out sessions during the event will also allow attendees to network and share with others about applying evidence-informed strategies to prevent child and youth injury.
