What we do
We are a multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, researchers and educators working together to research, identify, and educate the community on the leading causes of preventable injuries.
Why we do it
- Trauma is the No. 1 killer of Americans between the ages of 1 and 44.
- In Colorado, deaths from trauma are 15% higher than the national average.
- Suicide in Colorado is 52% higher than the national average.
- Colorado is ranked 5th in the United States for deaths due to falls.
