About the event
Creighton University's National Public Health Week Speaker Series Many of the systems we have created to prevent interpersonal violence and promote public health have low buy-in and trust from the public, rendering them far less effective than we would like. The burden of this disconnect is often misplaced, sometimes onto the very individuals and communities experiencing violence. In this session, we will explore ways that public health systems are contributing to violence in the lives of the people and communities we serve, and how we as individuals can be a part of a movement for change. Objectives: - Identify at least two ways that violence prevention/public health systems cause harm. - Describe how violence and control are connected processes. - Identify one change you can commit to that will address this problem.
