Injury Prevention Center at Connecticut Children's Medical Center

The Injury Prevention Center (IPC) is a program of Connecticut Children's Medical Center. The IPC was founded in 1990 and has become one of the premier institutions researching how and why children and youth suffer injuries, and what can be done to prevent them. Engaging community partners in these efforts is the key to successful injury prevention.

Our mission is to reduce unintentional injury and violence among Connecticut's children, adolescents, and adults.  The IPC seeks to translate research into injury prevention programs and policy.  To meet our mission the IPC implements four core activities: research, community safety programs, education and training, and public policy.
