Injury Prevention

Injury Prevention

Injuries from trauma - ranging from schoolyard falls to high-speed automobile collisions - are the leading cause of death and disability in children. The University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children's Hospital, a Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center, cares for the most seriously injured children. Key to the work undertaken by the Pediatric Trauma Program is an array of injury prevention outreach programs designed to educate children, parents and community members. These efforts continually evolve to meet the changing trends of traumatic injuries and the needs of our community's children.

Our work involves:

  • Educating children and adults
  • Advocating for effective laws
  • Providing reduced cost safety products to low-income families
  • Conducting research
  • Creating safe environments
