HPIO to host regional forums on family violence prevention

The Health Policy Institute of Ohio invites you to attend one of five free, half-day regional forums to discuss county-level findings on family violence in Ohio. The forums, titled "Using Family Violence Data to Build Support for Prevention in Ohio," will present data on child abuse/neglect, intimate partner violence and elder abuse/neglect and provide training to those interested in using the information to build support for prevention.

At the end of this forum, participants will be able to:

  • describe at least four sources of family violence data in Ohio;
  • demonstrate the ability to access online sources of family violence data in Ohio;
  • prepare an accurate, compelling graph that conveys at least one of the following themes: (1) family violence in your county is as common as other widely recognized threats to health and well-being, (2) many cases in your county never come to the attention of authorities, (3)both prevention and intervention are key to curtailing family violence. 

All sessions will be held from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm.
