Leading Injury Prevention Through Education, Research and Policy
Each year, an estimated 1.7 million persons in the United States sustain a brain injury, and 12,000 - 20,000 sustain a spinal cord injury.
In fact, injury is the leading cause of
death among children and teens. The most frequent causes of these injuries are
motor vehicle crashes, violence, falls, sports and recreation. The good news is
that most injuries are preventable! The ThinkFirst
National Injury Prevention Foundation's award-winning, evidence-based programs
are aimed at helping people learn to reduce their risk for injury.
