After the success of its inaugural conference, the Mid-Atlantic Partnership is proud to bring its second conference to the public health communities across Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland.

The conference will cover public health topics with a trauma-informed lens as together we consider the many ways that trauma impact individuals and communities, recognizing the signs, developing a system that responds to that level of care with healing and resiliency and lastly, prevention of trauma in the future. Abstracts are now being accepted on the topics below:
