TODAY! Child Injury Town Hall

Injury is the #1 Killer of Children

Car crashes, suffocation, drowning, poisoning, fires and falls are some of the most common causes of injury death among children. Learn how you can help save lives and prevent these injuries.

Join CDPHE's very own Lindsey Myers today at 12:00pm MST as she and CDC subject matter experts present the latest information about unintentional child injury at a special town hall teleconference.

On April 16th the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a Vital Signs report which presents the latest information about unintentional child injury in the US and highlights strategies for addressing the issue.

This teleconference provides a forum for state, tribal, local and territorial health, policy and communications officials to broaden the conversation, build momentum, and ensure active implementation of evidence-based, effective programs within child injury prevention.

Participate in this special briefing and be among the first to hear from CDC experts about the new data and learn about a number of new resources available to help you promote child injury data in your community.
