Course Time/Duration



State injury programs have developed a wide range of public and private partnerships to advance injury and violence prevention and control activities, policy initiatives, and educational opportunities within the communities they serve. For many state injury and violence prevention programs, the partnerships developed with the Injury Control Research Centers (ICRCs) has been vital in promoting injury prevention and control activities, translating research into practice and accessing technical expertise in a variety of areas. This webinar will explore those relationships from the perspective of the state injury program and of the ICRC. CDC will provide an overview of their interaction and expectations for partnering with ICRCs through a Cooperative Agreement process.
