Turning Trauma Center Injury Prevention Efforts toward Vision Zero

Turning Trauma Center Injury Prevention Efforts toward Vision Zero

WalkBoston will soon begin working with greater Boston’s Level 1 Trauma Centers to engage them in pedestrian injury prevention efforts.  From 2001-2014, more than 25,000 pedestrians were struck by vehicles in Massachusetts, resulting in unacceptably high numbers of preventable pedestrian injuries. As announced by the Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation at Brigham & Women’s Hospital, the Center is awarding a grant to WalkBoston to implement a training program to greater Boston’s Level 1 Trauma Centers, giving staff the necessary tools to pursue pedestrian safety improvements as a component of their injury prevention efforts, and laying the groundwork for national efforts.
