This blog is part of a Graduate Course requirement.

This blog is based on a paper written to fulfill the requirements for the class Public Health 6123: Violence Prevention and Control, at the University of Minnesota. Students were asked to select a violence-related problem pertinent to their own research area and discuss the magnitude of the problem and related issues. Students were also instructed to use an epidemiological approach in developing strategies for prevention and control of injury, specifically incorporating Haddon's Matrix and Haddon's Ten Strategies.
