Opportunity: Call for Abstracts and Reviewers for Safe States 2021


Share Your Expertise!

To say it has been a challenging year, would be an understatement. Injury and violence prevention (IVP) professionals have certainly felt the impact of the pandemic - taking on additional duties, pivoting programming to accommodate the virtual world we now live in, all while balancing new personal and family challenges.


Now it is time to Reconnect and Reimagine IVP at the Safe States 2021 Virtual Injury and Violence Prevention Conference.


Last year over 400 IVP professionals experienced Safe States' first-ever virtual conference. For 2021, we are excited to build upon that successful format, offering three days of unparalleled learning and networking opportunities.


The Safe States 2021 Annual Conference will provide opportunities to Reconnect with peers from across the country on the important topics and issues impacting the field and Reimagine what injury and violence prevention looks like going forward.


The 2021 virtual conference will be held August 31st through September 2nd and feature both live and pre-recorded presentations. We know our members and partners are doing exciting and innovative work to advance the practice and the field, so it's your time to shine! We encourage you to attend and share your expertise with colleagues from across the country at this year's conference.
