Trauma prevention

UCHealth’s trauma prevention outreach efforts include evidence-based programs to educate children and adults in order to help prevent injuries.

Discovery Trauma

Outreach education program designed to help reduce injuries in the pediatric population by offering direct education to the 5th-grade students in area elementary schools.

Trauma talks Tough

This program provides education for young drivers and at-risk youth from the medical perspective and offers both the consequences of unsafe driving practices and wise choices. Trauma Services offers this program presentation to both small classrooms and large auditoriums at area high schools in conjunction with Drive Smart High School Challenge.

The presentation includes an Emmy-nominated documentary filmed in El Paso County, called “An Adventurous Heart.”
