Oregon's Public Health Week Focused on Injury Prevention

Highlights of the April 4-8 event are the University of Washington School of Public Health dean speaking on the future of public health and the director of CDC's National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion speaking on the future direction of chronic disease prevention.

Oregon Public Health Week is set for April 4-8 and will be focused mainly on injury and violence prevention. The theme is "Safety is NO Accident: Prevent Injuries and Violence in Oregon."

"Many kinds of injuries and violence are preventable, but injury prevention is greatly underutilized," said Mel Kohn, M.D., MPH, director of the Oregon Health Authority's Public Health Division, "so during Public Health Week we hope to highlight the potential for reducing the burden of injuries here in Oregon."

Highlights of the April 4-8 event are Howard Frumkin, M.D., Dr. P.H., dean of the University of Washington School of Public Health, speaking on the future of public health and the director of CDC's National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Ursula Bauer, Ph.D., MPH, speaking at the state capitol in Salem on the future direction of chronic disease prevention.

Thomas A. LaVeist, Ph.D., the William C. and Nancy F. Richardson professor in health policy and director of the Hopkins Center for Health Disparities Solutions at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, will speak on "It's the Skin You're In: Why African Americans Live Sicker and Die Younger." He will discuss this public health phenomenon and explore what can be done about it.
