Harlem Art Program

Injury Free Coalition for Kids is now a division within the Outreach section of the Center for Injury Epidemiology and Prevention at Columbia, Mailman School of Public Health, one of ten CDC funded Injury Control and Research Centers. The Center provides partial salary support for the National Program Office, which includes administrative support, grant management, and office space at the school. This gives Injury Free a secure home within Columbia University's Mailman's School of Public Health.

Injury Free reaches out to Pediatric Trauma Centers nationally and internationally and also to individuals interested in injury prevention. Sites which contribute annual dues to Injury Free support the conference, the NPO, website, the list serves, acquisition of copies of the Journal of Trauma Supplement, and other organization efforts. These dues make those sites eligible for small grant funding for cross site projects coordinated through the NPO, and four no cost conference registrations annually. Injury Free supports cross site research, cross site programming, individual site research grants, and the academic promotion of Injury Free physicians. The Journal of Trauma continues to publish papers from the conference as part of our mission to disseminate best practices broadly and encourage injury prevention activities. The Injury Free network includes members from many different disciplines all committed to reducing the burden of injury nationally and internationally.
