Injury prevention

Trauma is the leading cause of death for all children over the age of one year, and most are preventable. With community education we can significantly reduce the number of traumas from specific mechanisms.

We aim to educate families and prevent emergencies through interesting and interactive programs sponsored by Prisma Health Children’s Hospital–Midlands.

ThinkFirst for Kids

ThinkFirst for Kids focuses on preventing traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries from falls, diving in shallow water and not wearing appropriately fitted helmets during sports and outdoor play.
