Partner Spotlight

The Society for Advancement of Violence and Injury Research (SAVIR) is a professional organization whose mission is to provide leadership and foster excellence in the science of violence and injury prevention and care. We promote educational and scholarly activities that strengthen the field and inform research, policy, and program development. We also collaborate with practitioners and policymakers to bridge research, practice and policy efforts in communities. SAVIR believes strongly in mentoring the next generation of researchers and practitioners and in growing diversity in the field and in our membership. Additionally, we advocate for improved resources for injury prevention and control research and related activities. We are excited to collaborate with other injury prevention organizations in support of National Injury Prevention Day. We hope to collectively raise awareness regarding the enormous impact that injury has on our communities, especially communities of color, and to emphasize the importance of robust research and evaluation in implementing effective prevention interventions.
