Safe States and CDC are excited to offer a new webinar series on social media for injury and violence prevention (IVP). No matter your level of experience in social media, you will find something useful for learning how it can help in your IVP efforts. The live series offered monthly 1-hour webinars from September-December 2014. Each session covers a different aspect of using social media as an IVP professional and allow time for Q&A with presenters. Additionally, there will be practical, hands-on tasks that participants can complete to apply the knowledge and skills they gain during each webinar.

This is the first webinar in the series.
