Boston Children's Hospital's Injury Prevention Program

The Injury Prevention Program at Children's is committed to decreasing the incidence of injuries, including electrical and thermal burns, through community-based education efforts, distributing safety materials and conducting research into what works best.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
