Building Public Health Capacity for IPV

Millan AbiNader of the School of Social Policy & Practice (SP2) leads Penn’s participation in the Survivor Link + Public Health AmeriCorps program to provide financial support for SP2 students to build capacity in public health agencies, promote evidence-based interventions, and educate communities about intimate partner violence (IPV). Great news came recently as the new program was awarded a second year of funding.

“In the first year of Survivor Link + Public Health AmeriCorps, members engaged in 46,502 hours of service and trained 1,559 people across 188 agencies to more effectively respond to IPV.”
