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 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.
