Injury Prevention Education and Resources
Community Safety Is Our Priority
Shepherd Center is as deeply committed to preventing traumatic injuries as we are to treating them. Traumatic injuries are the leading cause of death and disability for young people through middle age. However, most injuries are preventable. That's why we're dedicated to dramatically reducing risks, creating safer environments, and preventing critical injuries throughout our communities.
Developing evidence-based initiatives to educate health professionals, policymakers, employers, and the public on injury prevention to make our communities and each other safer is one of our core strengths. We collaborate with state and federal agencies, private and public health organizations, schools, and our patients and families. Below are some of our current programs.
