Pediatric Trauma & Injury Prevention

Injuries from trauma - ranging from schoolyard falls to high-speed automobile collisions - are the leading cause of death and disability in children. The University of Michigan Health C.S. Mott Children's Hospital, a Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center, cares for the most seriously injured children. Our work involves educating children and adults, advocating for effective laws, providing reduced cost safety products to low-income families, conducting research, and creating safe environments. In addition, we provide a wide range of educational injury prevention programs and outreach events for children, parents, and community members, such as car seat installation tutorials and infant safety classes.
You can support our free programming through a donation.
