4147.0 Collaborations to improve health

Tuesday, October 30, 2012: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
This session focuses on a variety of collaborations found between academic and community groups, state and local health departments, and community agencies. It presents examples of each of these collaborations on topics such as intimate partner violence, sexual assault, and sex risk behaviors.
Session Objectives: After the session, participants will be able to describe at least three successful methods to recruit culturally diverse middle school students and adult participants for focus groups in the community, demonstrate how the socio-ecological model prevents or reduces women's experience of intimate partner violence, discuss students’ perception of their university’s response to reporting sexual assault, and identify health behaviors related to sexual violence for male and female college students.
