Paige Andrews

The Wisconsin Violence and Injury Prevention Partnership (WiVIPP) and Wisconsin Department of Health Services would like to invite you to the

2019 Wisconsin Violence and Injury Prevention Summit!

This summit is designed for primary injury and violence prevention professionals across all sectors who are seeking opportunities to build capacity in data, policy, and partnerships. Please share with your staff and partners who may be interested. Visit the event page for registration and more information about the summit.

The injury prevention summit is taking place on April 4, 2019, in Madison, WI (location to be announced). The summit is free of charge and scheduled from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. to reduce travel time burden for attendees across the state. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.

This summit aims to enhance resources and partnerships for determining burden and evidence-based practices and policies in injury and violence prevention. Some highlights include: keynote addresses from Dr. Steve Hargarten on violence as a biopsychosocial disease and from Project Ujima, with a panel highlighting six Wisconsin-specific injury and violence datasets, and breakouts that address successful prevention efforts in areas such as child abuse and neglect, falls, drug harm, and suicide. In addition, there will be an opportunity to identify themes and trends to simultaneously inform the WiVIPP, Wisconsin Maternal and Child Health Title V needs assessment, and WI DHS statewide health assessment process.

Please direct any inquiries to Paige Andrews, the strategic planner for the WI DHS Violence and Injury Prevention Program, at paige.andrews@dhs.wisconsin.gov.
