Join Fenton, a social justice communications firm, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and others from the PreventConnect national community of prevention practitioners for a conversation about framing data to make the case for primary prevention. This fall, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will release initial results of the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS). The new data about intimate partner violence, sexual violence and a stalking will create opportunities to raise awareness about the prevalence of these public health problems and to make the case for prevention.
In this web conference, we will discuss NISVS and its messaging implications for the field, explore tools for creating a strong message framework around IPV/SV/stalking data, and workshop questions solicited from the field in advance of the web conference. This information will provide practitioners with the knowledge necessary to develop strong messages about the data and the need for primary prevention in order to reach a variety of constituents.
This web conference is part of a PreventConnect series that prepares prevention practitioners to use data to make the case for prevention.
