Online

The University of Michigan Injury Prevention Center has organized a unique event to share the latest evidence-based suicide prevention research, facilitate new collaborations, and explore new ideas for suicide prevention. We are accepting poster abstracts that fall within the full spectrum of suicide prevention research. These could include: epidemiology, public policy, innovative strategies to expand and enhance suicide prevention research, adoption of new evidence-based suicide prevention practices, translation and communication of suicide prevention science and information, effective partnerships among organizations in developing new collaborative suicide prevention approaches, suicide prevention efforts in the context of COVID-19, or suicide prevention in relation to social justice and/or vulnerable populations. Submissions highlighting research or practice are welcome. After review, authors will be notified of the planning committee’s decision by email. If accepted, poster presenters will be asked to give a flash science presentation of their poster (3 minutes) during the virtual event. There will be breakout rooms where attendees will be able to ask questions and have further discussion. Submit your abstract by Friday, January 15, 2021 as an email attachment to: skamat@med.umich.edu. Please visit the Eventbrite link for the abstract guidelines and more information about the summit.
