The Wisconsin Violence and Injury Prevention Partnership (WiVIPP) is convening champions and professionals in injury and violence prevention across the state for the 2019 Wisconsin Injury and Violence Prevention Summit.


About the Summit


This summit is focused on enhancing the capacity of primary injury prevention professionals, advocates, and their partners. Specifically, WiVIPP is encouraging attendance from injury and violence professionals at the state, tribal, county, and local level; injury and trauma coordinators within hospitals and primary care settings; and those involved in community coalitions and advocacy groups.

The 2019 Wisconsin Injury and Violence Prevention Summit aims to meet the following objectives:

  • Enhance statewide injury surveillance data to define and highlight injury and violence impact and disproportionate burden in Wisconsin
  • Improve capacity for evidence-based practice and policy development by Wisconsin injury and violence prevention professionals
  • Develop new and expand existing partnerships to leverage injury and violence prevention resources across Wisconsin

Agenda and Schedule


The final agenda will be shared soon. Current highlights include:

  • Keynote speaker Dr. Steve Hargarten of the Medical College of Wisconsin addressing violence as a biopsychosocial disease
  • Keynote speakers Brooke Cheaton and Jermaine Belcher of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin speaking to the process and success of Project Ujima
  • An emerging professionals track
  • Review of diverse injury datasets available across the state
  • Community partners speaking on behalf of child abuse prevention, falls prevention, and child death prevention best practices

WiVIPP is also calling for attendees to showcase their work in injury and violence prevention. During registration we encourage you to indicate your interest in poster submissions (pdf) to share lessons learned and success in injury and violence prevention surveillance, partnerships, policies, and practices.
