This Healthy People 2020 webinar on injury and violence prevention will focus on activities and interventions related to teen dating violence. Join us on Thursday, January 21 at 12:00 p.m. ET to learn how a community-based organization in Colorado is working to address dating violence through the Safe Dates program.

    1. Purpose of the Activity: ODPHP has identified a gap in health care and public health practitioners’ knowledge of current data related to national health priorities. These priorities are the basis for health improvement planning across the U.S. and among states, local health departments and hospitals, especially as they engage in the process of public health accreditation and in meeting the requirements of the Affordable Care Act. This series of webinars is designed to increase practitioners’ ability to identify critical health issues/needs for planning, understand data trends and analysis, and apply interventions at the community level that have been evaluated and shown to “move the needle” toward higher levels of quality and/or health improvement. 
    1. Objectives of the Activity: By attending this educational activity, participants will be able to (a) Describe the critical health issue (LHI) that is the focus of the webinar and discuss its implications for the health for the nation; (b) Identify the current data and trends for the LHI; (c) Explain at least one evidence-based strategy that can be used at the community level to address the LHI.
