Your donations support our mission to reduce the impact of injury and violence on people’s lives in the U.S. and globally. Our interdisciplinary faculty and staff conduct research, train scientists, educate public health practitioners and implement prevention programs to achieve injury-related health equity across the lifespan because all people belong in the circle of human concern. HIPRC directs its research and programs toward those groups at greatest risk of injury: children, the elderly, the poor, people of color, residents of rural areas, and others who are disproportionately impacted by a preventable injury.

We aim to reduce the rates of injury and death among these groups from unintentional events such as car crashes and drownings, and from purposeful acts such as suicide and murder. Efforts span the continuum of medical care, from epidemiological research to determine injury causes, to acute care of trauma patients, to rehabilitation in the hospital and home. Thank you for supporting HIPRC.
