Eliminating sexual violence on college campuses and in communities requires a comprehensive approach to primary prevention based on the best available research evidence. The CDC, in partnership with federal and local partners, is committed to advancing the science of sexual violence prevention to inform the development of more effective strategies. In this webinar, Kathleen will provide an overview of the latest knowledge related to sexual violence, including risk and protective factors, evidence-based strategies, and the need for comprehensive, multi-level approaches that address the complexities of this problem. Participants are encouraged to think about ways to apply this knowledge to build a comprehensive prevention plan for their campus or community. There will be opportunities for questions and answers throughout the webinar.
