On April 27, Alyssa Oliveri, communications manager for the International Injury Research Unit, participated in the quarterly meeting of the Partnership for a Safer Maryland. Formed in September of 2005, the mission of the Partnership is to advocate for injury and violence prevention, and promote education and surveillance, throughout the state of Maryland. Members run the gamut among local, state and federal agencies, universities and research institutions, injury care providers, and private, professional and nonprofit groups. Although IIRU's work focuses on international injury research, there are many advantages to collaboration and knowledge-sharing among our local partners. The mutual exchange of best practices will only benefit the work of injury research both here in the United States and worldwide.
