April 3, 2015

JBS International staff will explore the impact of trauma on public health during a Twitter chat April 7 at 11:30 a.m in support of National Public Health Week April 6-12, 2015. JBS Disability Services Center Director Eileen Elias and Sherry Peters, senior policy analyst and associate professor at Georgetown University, will guide a discussion on the benefit of a public health approach to treat and prevent trauma.

The Twitter chat is part of JBS’s third annual partnership with the American Public Health Association (APHA) for National Public Health Week, an initiative that emphasizes the importance of public health and the impact of prevention and wellness. The theme for 2015 is “Healthiest Nation 2030.”

In honor of the awareness week, the JBS social media accounts including Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and GooglePlus will feature information about the nation’s successes in the public health field and discuss what more can be done.

“Public health work lays the foundation and creates the conditions that put healthy choices within reach,” said co-CEO Gail Bassin. “Whether it’s through research, data collection, health education, policy change or direct services, JBS supports APHA in encouraging individuals and organizations to join the discussion for National Public Health Week.”
