Injury Free Coalition for Kids: Dissemination of a Model Injury Prevention Program for Children and Adolescents

The Foundation's program, Injury Free Coalition for Kids: Dissemination of a Model Injury Prevention Program for Children and Adolescents, was designed to reduce and prevent injuries to children through a hospital-based, research-driven model, implemented in partnership with coalitions of community stakeholders.This grant supports programs currently under way to reduce injury to the children of Rochester. These programs include an effort to assess, with the Monroe County Department of Transportation, the feasibility of making engineering changes at intersections that have been identified as hot spots for crashes. Classes will be scheduled with community organizations and city recreation centers to make the community aware of the dangers present at these intersections and what they can do to minimize the number of injuries. Interventions will include instituting new educational programs, focusing on law enforcement efforts, and engineering changes to reduce the likelihood or severity of injury, or to provide monetary incentives for the use of safety measures.
