The Injury Free Coalition for Kids® is among the country's most effective injury prevention programs. It is comprised of 42 sites located in Level I Trauma Centers of 30 states across the country in all the country's Federal Trauma Regions. These sites, including yours, have hospital-based, community-oriented injury prevention programs whose efforts are anchored in research, education, and advocacy. Each site has independent, physician-led programs driven by the Coalition's mission: preventing injury to children. While research determines where the injuries take place and which ones are most prevalent and severe, most of the injuries addressed occur in urban environments. Coalition members work to empower the diverse populations who live there, and they address the injuries most prevalent in their areas.
