Together we have the power to prevent harm and suffering from injury and violence.

Scientists and staff at the Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center work with diverse communities to identify injury prevention concerns and collaborate with community and policy partners to prevent injuries.

Using best practices from health education, behavioral science, social marketing, and communication, we ensure that our science is responsive to community injury prevention concerns. HIPRC and our partnerships jointly ensure that research translates into public policy and effective programs.
