HIPRC aims to reduce the impact of injury and violence on people’s lives. Our research translates into practical programs that create safer communities. This is best accomplished by nurturing collaborations with community partners and organizations towards a common goal.

HIPRC faculty are engaged in outreach activities both in the United States and abroad, such as:

  • Evaluating the effectiveness of parent education programs to prevent child abuse.
  • Increasing community awareness about the correct use of booster seats for toddlers.
  • Designing safer roadways for pedestrian traffic in Ghana.


Systematic review can clarify which programs are appropriate to implement on a broader scale, and which programs may be of greatest benefit to public health. To learn more about some of HIPRC's successful outreach programs, visit the links below.
