Jointly supported by Emory University's Rollins School of Public Health and the Department of Emergency Medicine, School of Medicine, the Emory Center for Injury Control is dedicated to reducing the health and economic impact of injuries in Atlanta, throughout Georgia, and worldwide.
Because effective injury control requires the expertise of many disciplines, the Center spans multiple departments and schools within Emory University. We also have strong partnerships with area Emergency Medical Services (EMS) providers and hospitals, several academic institutions, grass roots organizations, and government agencies.
The Center's core and affiliate faculty are widely recognized for work on a variety of topics, including prevention of firearm injuries and domestic violence, evaluation of programs to prevent child abuse and youth violence, and reduction of motor vehicle injuries by reducing impaired driving and promoting use of protective helmets and safety belts. We are actively engaged in international efforts to promote cost-effective injury surveillance systems and sustainable prehospital trauma care systems worldwide.
On the strength of these accomplishments, the Center was designated an official "Collaborating Center" for injury control, violence prevention, and emergency health services by the Pan American and World Health Organizations in 1995. In light of the responsibility this designation entails, we are more determined than ever to reduce the global toll of deaths, disability and costs due to injury.
