Injury Prevention

Promoting safety and prevention, our verified trauma center works to reduce the 6,500 preventable injuries causing death each year.

Each year, more than 6,500 children in the United States under the age of 14 lose their lives to preventable injuries. Phoenix Children’s works to reduce that number by offering injury prevention programs to address the most common causes of childhood injury. Reaching out to parents, caregivers, and grandparents, our messaging across print, digital and community outreach promotes public education and awareness.

Prevention programs target topics including passenger, home, water and sleep safety. We even created a smartphone application to help parents choose the correct car seats based on age, height, weight and any special needs. Your donation helps to keep our most vulnerable citizens safe at home, on the road, at school and at play.
