Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic Regional Network

The Maryland Department of Health leads the Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic Regional Network, which provides opportunities for sharing resources and building capacity in injury and violence prevention throughout the region.

The Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic Regional Network coordinates with states in the region to increase injury and violence competency among public health departments, research and practice collaboration, and sharing of data and best practices. The network also supports activities to help sustain injury prevention programs and leads a National Peer Learning Team on intimate partner violence as well as two regional teams working to prevent opioid overdoses and older adult falls.

Each state in the network has programs to develop, implement, and promote effective injury and violence prevention and control practices. States funded under the Core SVIPP are highlighted with a star.
