JH-IIRU team members, including director Adnan Hyder, associate directors Abdulgafoor M. Bachani, Kent Stevens, Leon Robertson Faculty Development Chair Kavi Bhalla and research program coordinator Jeffrey Lunnen, will be traveling to New Zealand for the 11th World Conference on Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion. This biennial meeting will bring together the leading scientists, researchers and academics from all over the world in an effort to strengthen the field of injury prevention and safety promotion.
The JH-IIRU team will be busy this year, both before and during the conference. JH-IIRU had more than 20 abstracts accepted, for oral and poster presentations, and Drs. Bachani and Stevens will host workshops, one on evaluating road safety interventions and the other on trauma care systems in low- and middle-income countries, respectively.
In addition, our colleagues at the Road Traffic Injury Research Network (RTIRN) will be hosting a workshop on road safety interventions from September 30th – October 1. For additional information, click here: http://www.conference.co.nz/files/docs/safety12/rtirn/rtirn%20flyer.pdf
