Happy 50 blog post anniversary to us! We are grateful to our blog subscribers, whether you have followed along since the beginning or are just tuning in.
Launched in 2016, our monthly injury blog features our injury & violence research, shares our news, and highlights our students, alumni and partners.
Our blog topics over the last four years reflect the diversity of the field of injury & violence prevention. Our field is more critical than ever: In the U.S., injuries and violence are the leading causes of death among people during the first four decades of life.
UI IPRC Director Corinne Peek-Asa said there has been amazing progress in the field, but there are forces working against safety and prevention including profit-seeking, pop culture, and the lack of will to invest.
“Our progress has been great, but we need to move faster and have broader reach to have the impact we need,” she said.
Here are some of our past blog posts by topic:
Rural Injuries & Violence
Older Adult Falls
Road Traffic Safety
Spotlight on injury pilot projects (bullying, child maltreatment)
