An internationally known professor who created a tool for predicting lethality in domestic violence situations gives the inaugural lecture for the newly minted UC Irvine Interdisciplinary Center on Family Violence this evening.
Jacquelyn C. Campbell, the Anna D. Wolf Chair at Johns Hopkins School of Nursing; professor with the Bloomberg School of Public Health; and national program director of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Nurse Faculty Scholars, is scheduled to speak from 5-7 p.m. at the UCI School of Law.
She will be introduced by Dean Erwin Chemerinsky.
Campbell created the Danger Assessment Instrument, the most commonly used tool for predicting lethality in the domestic violence context. “Her multiple federally funded research investigations paved the way for a growing body of interdisciplinary knowledge in nursing, medicine and public health,” say event promoters, who note she has written seven books and more than 220 articles and “is frequently sought by national and international policy makers to address intimate partner violence and its health effects.”
The Interdisciplinary Center on Family Violence unites community partners with faculty from 20 UCI departments to address the complex problem of family violence, with the goal of becoming the premier site for research, education, clinical care and community collaboration on family violence prevention and intervention. Included are experts in biological and physical sciences, engineering, information & computer sciences, art, law, medicine and health sciences, nursing, social sciences and social ecology.
This evening's event will be in UCI School of Law's EDU 1111. You should RSVP to email@example.com to make sure they save you a seat.
