The theme for the 2011 ASTHO, NACCHO, & Safe States Alliance webcast series is “Special Topics in Violence Prevention.”


Gang-related youth violence is a complex public health problem that can be addressed by using innovative, prevention-focused strategies and strong, collaborative partnerships. Acknowledging the impact of firearms on the lethality of gang-related violence, it is critical to explore the public health role in supporting primary and secondary prevention efforts to minimize violence-related firearm deaths and injuries that continue to disproportionately affect youth. This webcast features presentations by professionals and experts that are actively implementing programs in their states and communities to prevent gang-related violence. During this webcast, speakers address the national burden of firearm-related injuries among youth, describe programs currently being implemented to prevent gang-related violence and enhance youth empowerment, and provide insights on how to address the challenges of delivering effective violence prevention programs that utilize a public health approach.


The three webinars in this series are: Webinar 1: Using Policy to Prevent Teen Dating Violence; Webinar 2: Exploring the Intersection: Enhancing Active Living through Violence Prevention; Webinar 3: Programs and Partnerships to Prevent Gang-Related Youth Violence
