Injury Prevention

Role & Objective

Every year, unintentional injuries kill and disable more children than all other childhood diseases combined. Our goal is to reduce unintentional childhood injury. This is done through education and instruction on topics and issues such as car seat safety, bicycle and pedestrian safety, safe sleep, sledding, and more.
