Injury Prevention Program
The Injury Prevention Program at Children’s Hospital is a nationally recognized program. Prevention is the key to breaking the cycle of unintentional injury. Through collaboration with community partners, evidenced based strategies and innovative technologies, the Prevention team is reaching more families with injury prevention education than ever before.
Nationally recognized programs include L.A. Street Smarts, an interactive neighborhood scenario environment that helps children learn pedestrian safety; car seat education classes; home safety education and sports safety/concussion awareness campaigns.
