Cape Cod Healthcare to Present Anti-bullying Talk

(Hyannis, March 15, 2011) Cape Cod Healthcare will present a talk on anti-bullying strategies for health care providers, educators and the community by Matthew G. Masiello, MD, MPH, FAACP, Director of the Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention at the Windber Research Institute in Windber, Pennsylvania. The talk will begin at 7 p.m., March 30, in the Knight Auditorium at Barnstable High School.

Dr. Masiello, who is a practicing pediatrician, was invited by local pediatricians and Cape Cod Hospital to talk to health care providers and the community. He will address the social epidemic of bullying and the strategies doctors, educators, parents and others can use to prevent and address it. He will discuss school-based bullying and how others can apply tactics from a successful bullying prevention initiative underway in Pennsylvania.

Dr. Masiello serves as medical director for the largest U.S. implementation and evaluation of an internationally-recognized bullying prevention program. By 2012, this project is expected to reach approximately 230,000 school children in 442 Pennsylvania schools that have more than 17,000 teachers.

Dr. Masiello serves on the governance board of the World Health Organization’s Health Promoting Hospital Network. He works closely with the World Health Organization Collaborative Centers in Vienna, Austria, and Copenhagen, Denmark, where he introduces international protocols and studies of U.S. health systems.

The presentation on March 30 is free and open to the public. The Barnstable High School Knight Auditorium is located at 744 West Main Street in Hyannis. Nursing Continuing Education (CE) hours will be awarded.
