Child Sexual Abuse: A Public Health Perspective Symposium
All Day

Registration is now open!

Please join us Thursday, April 27, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the Moore Center’s fifth annual symposium, Child Sexual Abuse: A Public Health Perspective, at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Sheldon Hall (W1214).

Speakers this year will focus on policies that affect children with problem sexual behaviors and highlight child sexual abuse prevention research that targets school-age children.

  • Featured Speakers: This year we are pleased to welcome Johns Hopkins University President Ronald Daniels and Patrick McCarthy, president and chief executive officer of the Annie E. Casey Foundation.
  • Free Documentary Screening: Untouchable” is a documentary that “interweaves intimate portraits of men and women who have been branded sex offenders with the heartbreaking stories of those who have suffered sexual abuse.” Director David Feige will join our panel for a discussion about the film. Watch the trailer.
  • Lunch and Learn: Please join us for a luncheon and talk by Moore Center graduate student Geoff Kahn. Catered lunch is $10.
  • Child Maltreatment Student Poster Session: Poster presentations on child maltreatment prevention will be presented by students. To submit a proposal, please click here.

As always, the symposium is free and open to the public, however, registration is required. Please forward this email to anyone who might be interested in attending. We hope to see you there.

7:30 AM

Bloomberg School of Public Health

JOINT TELE-WORKSHOP: Critical Global Health Seminar, JHU Department of the History of Medicine, SOM, JHU Department of History, Africa Seminar, KAS, JHU Transdisciplinary Health and Development Studies Programme, Stellenbosch University, South Africa. Global health interventions in the 21st century have become increasingly reliant on the use of biomedical objects—vaccines, artemisinin combination therapies, antiretroviral drugs, insecticide impregnated bednets, vitamin A capsules, and ready-to-use therapeutic foods like “plumpy-nut”—to improve the health of peoples living in resource-poor countries across the globe, and particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. At first glance, the use of these technologies has resulted from a linear process of development and production, testing in the field, followed by their adoption by global health institutions and distribution through networks involving manufacturers, donor organizations, and NGOs. Yet a closer examination of each stage of this pipeline reveals a more complicated narrative. This narrative raises multiple questions which will be explored in this workshop. The panels include researchers from the U.S., England, and South Africa who have studied global health from the perspectives of history, anthropology, sociology, medicine, public health, and sciences and technology studies. Bloomberg School of Public Health, Room W5030. Discussion of pre-circulated papers. Pre-registration required, by email only.
