The webcast specifically addresses LGBT bullying as a public health issue through law and policy.

They also provide information on the health impact of being bullied, the health impact of being a witness to bullying, the limitations of traditional methods of addressing bullying, the use of a holistic public health approach to bullying, and anti-bullying statutes in the 50 states and Washington, D.C.
