An early step to inform our work within our injury prevention goal is to have an understanding of those currently involved in injury prevention activities and the nature of the activities being done. A Profile of Wake County Childhood Injury and Injury Prevention is the result of that work. The report details organizations engaged in childhood injury prevention work, identifies key data and gaps on childhood injury, and outlines recommendations specific to injury prevention. Under contract by the John Rex Endowment, the report was prepared by the Healthy Solutions Team and the Carolina Center for Health Informatics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. - May 2014
