SAVIR Injury & Violence Prevention Grand Rounds

The SAVIR Injury & Violence Prevention Grand Rounds series aims to support SAVIR’s mission of providing leadership and fostering excellence in the science of violence and injury prevention and care.


The SAVIR Grand Rounds series: 

  • Fosters improved cohesion and connections among participants of the injury and violence prevention research community with practitioners and policymakers. 
  • Focuses the attention of the public health community on important injury and public health issues that affect our community, and
  • Strengthens capacities to promote and protect health by sharing knowledge about important public health problems and promising opportunities and efforts to address those problems in our area.

The goals of the SAVIR Grand Rounds series are to: 

  • Promote collective, educational and scholarly activity among its participants in developing the field of injury prevention and control research, policy and program development, teaching, and other activities that synthesize expertise from multiple disciplines, in creating a body of expertise that is greater than the sum of contributions from individual scholars or centers.
  • Provide a resource to other researchers, practitioners and decision-makers in accessing expertise in the development of research, program and policy activities.
  • Share knowledge in IVP across stakeholders.
