Safety and Injury Prevention

Among people 1-44 years of age, unintentional injury is the leading cause of death in the United States according to the centers for disease control and prevention (CDC). Even after age 44, unintentional injury remains among the top ten causes of mortality among Americans. Additionally, millions of Americans are injured each year and not die. For individuals that survive an injury, pain and disability can linger for years, if not for the rest of their lives. This course explores the complex nature of unintentional injuries while examining the impact of various prevention strategies.
