Injury Prevention Program Overview

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

It’s a sad fact that injury is the number one cause of death and disability among children in the United States.

Fortunately, most childhood injuries are preventable. At Boston Children's Hospital, our Trauma Center's Injury Prevention Program is dedicated to dramatically decreasing the number of preventable injuries through research and public education.

We work in the local community, educating clinicians and families and distributing safety materials. Boston Children's administers and supports many community initiatives designed to prevent childhood injury. We’re also conducting research to better understand how to prevent injury.

What we do

The Injury Prevention Program works with the Trauma Center to treat and prevent the most common and complex childhood injuries. Our network of pediatric specialists includes some of the world's most experienced pediatric physicians, clinicians and technicians with expertise in the conditions and treatments below.

Fitting stations

The Boston Children's Hospital main campus holds community fitting stations on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10:00 am-12:00 pm. Appointments are also available at the Peabody campus on Fridays from 1:00 pm-3:00 pm.
