2012 Daniel J. Raskin Memorial Symposium on Injury Prevention
October 9, 2012

2012 Daniel J. Raskin Memorial Symposium on Injury Prevention Given by Joan Claybrook

The Daniel J. Raskin Symposium honors Daniel J. Raskin, a highly skilled human factors investigator with the National Transportation Safety Board, and a tireless advocate for transportation safety and injury prevention. Danny was killed as a volunteer firefighter in 1990 by a preventable explosion of faulty equipment. This symposium is endowed by the Raskin family as a tribute to Daniel’s life work in injury prevention, and to educate public health professionals and the broader community about current research, policy, and programs to reduce injury.

The speaker for the 2012 Raskin Memorial Symposium is Joan Claybrook, JD, President Emeritus of Public Citizen, who presented “The Politics of Safety.” Ms. Claybrook served as president of Public Citizen from 1982 to 2009, and prior to that was head of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. She has worked tirelessly to improve the safety of our nation’s highways and automobiles, and ensure that injury prevention is part of public policy.

Ms. Claybrook was also presented with the Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy’s Community Hero Award. This award recognizes distinguished injury prevention leaders and exemplary programs that contribute to improving safety in our communities.

A recording of her presentation is available below

Trauma Care & EMS

The morning of July 20, 2004, Connie was driving her usual route to work on a scenic, two-lane, winding road in the horse country of Virginia, when a young man driving the opposite way fell asleep at the wheel and crashed head-on into her car.  At that moment, Connie’s life depended on the U.S. trauma system.
