Community Outreach and Educational Programs
We strongly believe in the old adage – Prevention is the best cure. Therefore we provide several injury prevention programs for the community. The information from our trauma registry, such as types of injuries, ages and where they live, tells us where we need to focus our injury prevention programs and education.
Programs, such as the Fall Prevention, Safe Streets, Stop the Bleed, etc. aim to educate and prevent injuries and trauma. They are conducted typically in the community in collaboration with various NYC and other non-profit agencies. These programs are multidisciplinary (with physical/occupational therapists) and have measureable outcomes to evaluate their effectiveness. We also join other health providers and agencies in the area so that we can work together to save lives.
