12 for 2012: Prevention Institute’s most popular resources

2012 begins with many new opportunities to build on the impressive accomplishments of prevention advocates in the past year; we have been proud to work alongside communities and organizations making substantial policy and environmental changes to support health. To support that work, Prevention Institute has continued to build our library of free, online publications, tools and resources designed to help you put prevention and equity at the center of community wellbeing. We invite you to start 2012 by reading and sharing our 12 most popular resources. Here are the top three:

  1. Prevention is Primary: Strategies for Community Wellbeing: Hundreds of public health teachers and leaders joined webinars highlighting the 2011 edition of our landmark textbook, designed to prepare public health advocates, the primary care workforce, and community-based organizations to fully participate in the new national conversation on prevention.

  2. We’re Not Buying It: Stop Junk Food Marketing to Kids: Think Big Food is on the side of health? Think again. Our two-minute video highlighting deceptive marketing to children, debunking industry claims, and exploring the latest research on kids health and advertising has been viewed over 24,000 times in the past three months.

  3. UNITY Fact Sheets: Links Between Violence and Chronic Diseases, Mental Illness and Poor Learning, and Links Between Violence and Health Equity: Fact sheets from PI's Urban Networks to Increase Thriving Youth (UNITY) have been shared by the CDC, WHO, and many other public health networks. Find out how violence affects other health problems and community concerns, such as chronic diseases, mental illness, poor learning and equitable health outcomes.
