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 2023, 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 14th from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. via Zoom. Registration details coming soon!
On Saturday, November 18th, National Injury Prevention Day 2023 will culminate in hospitals and trauma centers across the nation bathing in green light. In Seattle, various buildings will be illuminated in green! Click here to learn more about National Injury Prevention Day 2023.
