"Federal Partnerships to Win the Winnable Battle of Motor Vehicle Injuries"

Featured Speakers
 

 

Grant Baldwin
Director
Division of Unintentional Injury Prevention, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
Brian McLaughlin
Senior Associate Administrator.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)

Session Description

Under the leadership of CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden, the CDC identified “winnable battles” or public health priorities with large-scale impact on health and with known, effective strategies to intervene and quickly achieve measurable impact. The charge under Winnable Battles is to identify optimal strategies and to rally resources and partnerships to accelerate a measurable impact on health. One such partnership is the CDC – NHTSA Memorandum of Understanding and partnership to prevent motor vehicle injuries. Leaders from CDC and NHTSA will discuss the U.S. burden of motor vehicle injuries, describe areas where CDC and NHTSA are partnering to achieve greater impact, and what each agency sees as opportunities for the future.

"Storytelling as Best Practice "

Featured Speaker
 

Andy Goodman
The Goodman Group

Session Description

Ever since we began talking to each other, telling stories has been the most powerful way to capture attention, engage an audience, and motivate them to act. Steadily advancing technology keeps handing us shiny new tools to communicate faster and farther – think iPads and Twitter to name just two – but in our fervor to remain current (and appear professional) we often ignore our natural inclination to tell a good story. In “Storytelling as Best Practice,” Andy Goodman will explain why he believes storytelling remains the single most powerful communication tool you possess, and he will offer specific ways your organization can use stories to advance your mission. By using these storytelling strategies, you can learn how to develop compelling and moving messages that show how prevention programs and data systems – such data from the National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS) – are used each day to ensure that children and adults can live to their fullest potential.
