New Webinar Series
Public Health & Child Maltreatment Prevention  

Baby faceEvery year in the U.S., Child Protective Services receives millions of reports of children being abused and neglected. CDC research shows the lifetime financial cost of child abuse and neglect is comparable to some of our nation’s biggest health problems, like type-2 diabetes and stroke.
Effective prevention efforts require many people and agencies working together toward the same goal: reducing the number of children who are harmed or die due to abuse and neglect. State health departments play a critical role in promoting safe, stable and nurturing relationships for children so that they can reach their full potential.
The Public Health Leadership for Child Maltreatment Prevention Initiative (PHL)* is hosting a three-part webinar series that will highlight strategies and tools for state public health departments to address child maltreatment prevention.
