PhD Alum Janessa Graves Finds Bike Share Programs Increase Cyclist Head Injuries
A novel study by HSERV PhD alumna Janessa Graves has found that bike share programs increase the risk of cyclist head injuries by 14%. KPLU reports that "author Janessa Graves, assistant professor at the WSU School of Nursing who is affiliated with the Harborview Injury Prevention Research Center, said a pretty clear-cut culprit is that bike share programs generally don’t offer helmets." This research has also been featured in the Washington Post.
