As a part of our larger education efforts, IPRC has launched a new webinar series!

The purpose of this webinar series is to provide a platform for interesting, innovative, and impactful research and initiatives relevant to injury and violence prevention (IVP) to be shared. Additionally, our hope is this series will also help to foster connection within the field of IVP and across other disciplines.

The webinars in this series will be hosted on the second Wednesday of each month from 12 – 12:30pm from October 2022 – May 2023. Each month we will feature a new speaker presenting on a different IVP topic area. Recordings of past webinars are available on the UNC IPRC YouTube Channel and are linked in the schedule listed below.

If you have any questions or would like to suggest a potential speaker or topic area for an upcoming webinar, please email Siarra Scott (
