Representative Gwen Moore (D-WI) joins the Injury and Violence Prevention Network in sponsoring a Congressional Briefing: It Works! Preventing Injuries & Violence.

Injuries and violence touch all of our lives – from motor vehicle crashes and prescription opioid drug overdoses to suicide and gun violence. Yet, policies and programs that have a proven track record for preventing these injuries and deaths are often missing from health promotion and prevention policy efforts. Please join us as we showcase opportunities that exist today to save lives, while reducing the social and economic burdens of injury and violence in our communities.
