Dr. Linda Degutis, a national leader in injury prevention and recent Executive Director for the Center’s For Disease Control’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, formally endorses THE SWEETEST LAND. Dr. Degutis invited a private excerpt presentation to the CDC for their GRAND ROUNDS series in 2014. Thereafter, Dr. Degutis recognized the film for “humanizing the issue behind the numbers and the news reports.” Degutis also reiterates the challenge of finding strong advocates in violence prevention and the need to use our resources more effectively.
With her endorsement, Degutis’ position not only removes the politics from violence, but more importantly recognizes the need for evidence based approaches to save lives.
We can be, THE SWEETEST LAND.
