What I Did (for Injury Prevention) on My Summer Vacation

Come hear from five Injury Center-funded interns about their experiences working in injury prevention this past summer.  You'll hear from:

  • Johnny Berona (enrolled in the UM Clinical Psychology doctoral program), who worked closely with Dr. Cheryl King on suicide risk screening and intervention development
  • Danielle Jacobs (enrolled in master's programs at both UM School of Public Health and UM Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning), who completed an internship with Linda Scarpetta at the Michigan Department of Community Health.  Her internship focused on bicycle and pedestrian safety and climate change.
  • Jennifer Pierce (enrolled in Wayne State University's Psychology doctoral program), who worked on violence research with Dr. Sarah Stoddard at the School of Public Health
  • Ileisha Sanders (enrolled in UM School of Public Health master's program), who worked with Dr. Sara Konrath at the Institute for Social Research to identify correlates of school shootings to invoke violence prevention
  • Lara Schiff (recent graduate of UM School of Public Health master's program), who worked at the CDC National Center for Injury Prevention and Control

All have had rich and interesting experiences.  Attendees will have an opportunity to learn about fascinating aspects of injury work from these hard-working interns.

Complimentary lunch will be provided to those who register by September 30, 2013.
