Each year, MIPA hosts a summit for injury professionals to share experiences and information on injury and violence topics of common interest. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the summit will be held virtually this year on December 9th, 2020, from 8:00 am-12:45 pm CST.
This year’s theme—Keeping a 20/20 Focus During Challenging Times—will cover important topics that will inspire, instruct and illustrate the power of partnerships, the passion of programs, and the practice of policy in changing the landscape of injury and violence in each of our states.
The summit will include discussions about current research, innovative programs, new strategies and policies, as well as opportunities to connect – to establish new linkages and strengthen existing friendships and relationships.
