Injury and Violence Prevention Grand Rounds (co-hosted with Safe States Alliance) – Better Together: Enhancing Civilian-Military Collaboration for Preventing Suicide, Violence and Injury


During this interactive panel discussion, attendees will learn more about opportunities to engage in prevention work with military populations, using suicide prevention as a featured example. This session will highlight how practitioners and researchers can work to reduce injuries and violence in collaboration with military partners.

Speakers will provide a peek “behind the curtain” of the military infrastructure related to public health practice and research. Attendees will gain an understanding of the demographics and structures that impact military health outcomes and how public health related policy is set in military branches and installations.

Join us to hear inspiring success stories in advancing military suicide prevention and how to apply lessons learned to other topic areas within the field of Injury and Violence Prevention. For students and early career professionals, this session will also provide more information about civilian career opportunities in this area.
