Pediatric Trauma Injury Prevention Programs

Safe and Sound Program

A part of Pediatric Trauma Services, our Safe and Sound Injury Prevention Program continues the vital mission on which Children's Hospital was founded in 1929 -- to improve the lives of children in our region. Utilizing local and regional injury observation and data analysis, Safe and Sound provides community outreach and education to promote safety and reduce unintentional injuries in children.
