The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control’s Division Injury Prevention, Core State Injury Prevention Program (Core SIPP) and the Injury Control Research Center (ICRC) Program, hosted a joint Reverse Site Visit on September 13-14, 2023. This meeting helped bring Core SIPP and ICRC partners together to discuss the current work and research being implemented across the country. The meeting was designed to allow state injury and violence programs (e.g. Core SIPP or SVIPP) and ICRC partners to share their progress on a variety of injury topics and research areas highlighting their collaborative and innovative work.

HIPRC also presented on our Year 5 Mentorship Project, “Climate Change, Aging, and Health among Rural Alaska Native Elders.”
