Injury and violence are substantial and largely preventable public health problems. Injuries kill more Americans under the age of 35 than all diseases combined. Injury Science Day provides a forum to showcase the latest research about the prevention, control, acute care, and rehabilitation of intentional and unintentional injury.
The day will include:
60-Second Science featuring leading injury prevention researchers from the Philadelphia area. Moderated by Steve Fluharty, Vice Provost for Research, University of Pennsylvania.
Keynote Presentation by Linda C. Degutis, DrPH, MSN, Director of the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Before coming to the CDC in 2010, Dr. Degutis was Research Director for the Department of Emergency Medicine at Yale School of Medicine and Director of the Yale Center for Public Health Preparedness (YCPHP) at the Yale School of Public Health. Dr. Degutis’ research interests have centered on issues related to alcohol and injury, with a particular focus on interventions and policy issues. She has experience in both quantitative and qualitative research methods and analysis. Dr. Degutis has worked with national, state, and local coalitions on various other efforts that impact public health and public policy and has developed and taught programs on moving from research to advocacy.
