Project RESPONSE @ ICONIC Conference, May 22, 2017

Between May, 22nd – 24th 2017 in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, the Department of Public Health has organized 2nd International Conference on Non-communicable Diseases (ICONiC) Hold the Door Against Injury and Disease. 

This edition of the conference was jointly supported by the Center for International Rural and Environmental Health and the Injury Prevention Research Center, College of Public Health, University of Iowa, and organized by the Department of Public Health, College of Political, Administrative and Communication Sciences, Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca.

This edition of the conference addresses both the field of non-communicable disease and the field of violence and injury prevention and aimed to provide a forum that enables practitioners, researchers, business developers and service users to share new research  trends and evidence-based practices  in the fields of non-communicable diseases and injury prevention.

Therefore, we used this opportunity to present our RESPONSE Project to a wide audience of health practitioners and professionals from Romania, US, UK, Armenia, Georgia and The Republic of Moldova. The project was presented as part of the session violence against women, on day #1 of the conference. This is how the session looked like:
