“Connecting the Dots: An Overview of the Links between Multiple Forms of Violence” is a new resource co-developed by CDC’s Division of Violence Prevention and Prevention Institute. This webinar highlights key content from this resource including the latest research on the connections between different forms of violence and how these connections affect communities. Lisa Millet and Adrienne Greene from Oregon’s Division of Public Health will also join us to describe how they have worked strategically and creatively to prevent multiple types of violence from occurring in the first place. During this webinar, participants will learn:

-What the latest research says about shared risk and protective factors across different forms of violence
-How experiencing one form of violence affects people’s risk for experiencing other forms of violence
-How to consider peoples’ risk and protection from multiple forms of violence within the context of their communities
-Examples of ways state health departments can address multiple forms of violence through shared risk and protective factors

Presenters for the webinar: Lisa Millet, MS (Oregon Health Authority) and Adrienne Greene, MPA (CDC)
