More than 36,000 children are treated in our emergency departments each year for injuries, ranging from schoolyard falls to high-speed automobile collisions. Injuries are the leading cause of death and disability in children. To reduce the incidence of childhood injuries, Akron Children's Injury Prevention team offers an array of programs designed to educate children, parents and community members.

We are also focused on:

  • Advocating for effective laws
  • Providing reduced-cost safety products to low-income families
  • Conducting research
  • Creating safe environments

Every year, we also look at the trends in pediatric traumas and injuries to determine which areas would benefit from new programming or increased priority. We also participate in numerous injury prevention outreach activities, many of these occurring in zip codes that are at high risk for childhood injury.
