This week, we highlight a live webinar about childhood and young adult injury and violence, as well as a course on what role hospitals can play in promoting a healthy and local food system.
Understanding and Preventing Childhood Deaths and Injuries
In this one-hour webinar on Tuesday, December 13, 2016 2:00 PM CST, the presenters will discuss why injury and violence prevention are foundational public health services and how child death review teams can play a role in this work. They will share the history of child death review in Washington State and use case studies to illustrate some of their recent accomplishments in reducing the injury burden. They will also lead a conversation about how this team approach is being adapted to address gun violence among young adults.
Increasing Local Food in Hospitals and Clinics for Health and Nutrition
Health care organizations have the potential to play an influential role in creating a healthier food system. Hospitals have large food service budgets, reach a large population, and are trusted authorities on health issues, created for the purpose of preserving wellness. This course is designed to provide knowledge and tools needed to increase the use of healthy, local food in healthcare facilities.
