Next Hot Topics Webinar: Brain Development and Injury Prevention

November 6, 2017

In the November session of Hot Topics in Practice, Karyn Brownson, MSW, shares the latest research linking brain and social development with injury prevention.

As children progress through the developmental stages of early life and adolescence, their injury risks change as much as their bodies. In the November session of Hot Topics in Practice, Karyn Brownson, MSW, shares the latest research linking brain and social development with injury prevention, and discusses how this information can be applied to a variety of public health interventions to protect young people.

Brownson will review the basics of brain development for people under 25 and demonstrate how each stage can be linked to particular risks like drowning and community violence. Using case studies from King County, Washington, she will help participants explore developmentally-tailored interventions for homes and communities.

Register today to learn how to tailor and align youth injury prevention efforts across many areas of public health practice.
