Center Celebrates 30th Anniversary in 2017
In 1987, Susan Baker founded the Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research & Policy (JHCIRP) as a hub for injury control research that guides policy and saves lives. Now, 30 years later, a large multidisciplinary team continues the tradition of excellence in research, education, and practice addressing a diverse array of subjects-- from the opioid epidemic and new technology in motor vehicle safety, to home injuries and pedestrian safety. We serve as an injury prevention resource for the Johns Hopkins community, as well as decision makers and the public regionally, nationally, and globally.
Throughout 2017, the JHCIRP team will play host to key, thought-provoking events and publish research across public health subjects, showcasing its depth and breadth. Explore the information below to stay informed of our upcoming year of celebration.
Support Our Work
We all would like to live in a society that is safe, where preventable injuries are rare. This goal is within our grasp-- if we invest now, applying what we know works to prevent injury, finding effective solutions to new problems, and training the next generation of injury prevention leaders.
