Blogging to Turn Research Into Action

February 20, 2013
Welcome to the Center for Injury Research and Prevention (CIRP)’s new Injury Blog! At CIRP, we recognize that to save lives and prevent injuries, we need to partner with you, the stakeholders who want to cure the epidemic of injury - community groups and non-profit organizations, government and regulatory bodies, industry, clinicians, and, most importantly interested children, teens and their families. Our scientific foundation can only make a difference when it informs the design and use of programs, policies and products and you are the change agents who make this happen. Through the Injury Blog, we hope to share important issues and scientific advances with the hope that this information will help to be useful to you, our stakeholders, and will help us work together to bring the evidence to practical solutions to address the epidemic of injury.
