What people are saying


Training & Education

For Melissa Spohn, the Summer Institute was the first chance to learn the science behind injury prevention. She rates the experience as one of the best continuing education opportunities she has had as a practicing public health professional. Spohn spreads the injury prevention message by integrating it throughout the health department system, helping to make her state safer.
