National Injury Prevention Day: November 18, 2022

HIPRC Shines a Green Light on National Injury Prevention Day

Injuries are the leading cause of death and disability to U.S. children from 1 to 18 years old. Every day, 20 children die from preventable injuries, resulting in more deaths than all other diseases combined. In fact, injury is the leading cause of death for people through 44 years of age.

In support of National Injury Prevention Day 2022, Harborview Injury Prevention & Research Center (HIPRC) will join Injury Free Coalition for Kids and other community partners in “Shining a Light” to prevent serious childhood injury.

Together with Public Health – Seattle & King County, Seattle Children’s, SPLASHForward, and Amazon, HIPRC will co-host a FREE (Virtual) Student Lifeguard Workshop on November 15th from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. via Zoom. Click here for registration details.

On Friday, November 18th, National Injury Prevention Day 2022 will culminate in hospitals and trauma centers across the nation bathing in green light. In Seattle, Harborview Medical Center’s Tower roof and 9th Ave entrance will be illuminated in green! Click here to learn more about National Injury Prevention Day 2022.
