"Policies to Prevent Bullying in Schools"

Bullying has long been a serious and complex public health problem. Given the recent increase in media attention to bullying incidents and tragedies nationwide, the need for policies that appropriately and effectively address bullying in schools has become increasingly apparent.

This webcast features presentations by professionals and advocates who are actively involved in shaping anti-bullying policies. During this webcast, speakers discuss their experiences with anti-bullying legislation (including legislation related to cyberbullying), describe the process needed to get such policies enacted, and provide insights on how state and local public health professionals can get more involved in the development and implementation of these policies.

"Policy Approaches to Injury Prevention:  Successes, Strategies, & the ASTHO Presidential Challenge"

To kick off the series, the first ASTHO, NACCHO, and Safe States Alliance webcast of the year featured three key leaders who are actively involved in national efforts to develop and support injury and violence prevention policies. The webcast offers valuable information about ASTHO's 2009-2010 Presidential Challenge, which is designed to inspire state health officials to "study the data, assess their state, and consider adopting at least one policy strategy that could lessen the burden of preventable injury and death in their home state." Participants also learned about past and present policy successes, as well as strategies for furthering these efforts in a variety of injury and violence prevention areas. Finally, participants were provided with updates from NCIPC regarding ongoing policy development activities being spearheaded by states and communities across the country.
