“The hands-on experiences I have gained in grant writing, data analysis, outreach activities, and professional presentations are incredible and the relationships I’ve formed with the other students, faculty, and staff are invaluable and lifelong.”
Projects: My Car Does What!? national education campaign; Characteristics of farm equipment-related crashes involving senior occupants; Effects of medication use on seniors operating a simulated tractor
“The IPRC has members from the various departments within the College of Public Health. In addition to this they reach out to other colleges at the UI and organizations in the Iowa City area and beyond. This helps me as a student build confidence in starting research because many cases are team efforts that require collaboration with other supportive researchers.”
Projects: Evaluation of the 2018 Big Ten Threat Assessment Conference; Program development using theatre to build resilience in Iowa youth; Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and juvenile justice
“I’ve learned that collaboration is everything especially when dealing with topics as sensitive as injury and violence. At the IPRC, we all work together from our various specialties and fields to tackle the same problems from multiple angles. I value being a member of a passionate research center that encourages me to apply myself beyond what I thought were my limits.”
Projects: Youth workplace violence; global health violence against children
