The video and presentation slides including Beyond the Data from the February session of CDC’s Public Health Grand Rounds, “Preventing Youth Violence, held on Tuesday, February 18 are now available at
This session of Grand Rounds explored the societal burden of youth violence, and the evidence-based approaches and partnerships that are necessary to prevent youth violence and its consequences. Homicide, the third leading cause of death among young people 10 to 24, is responsible for more deaths in this group than the next six leading causes of death combined. Each day, 13 homicides occur in this age group, and an additional 1,700 youth are treated in U.S. emergency departments for assault-related injuries, resulting in an estimated $17.5 billion in total costs per year. While many prevention programs have been found to significantly reduce youth violence, the available evidence-based approaches are often not used in communities because of real and perceived challenges to implementation. Some communities and public health departments have successfully built the capacity to take advantage of what we know works and are seeing substantial declines in youth violence.

Viewers learned about public health’s role in the prevention of youth violence, and the broad-based collaboration required to help communities stop youth violence before it starts.
