CDC Focuses on Pediatric Injury with New Study/ResourcesApril 19, 2012According 
to the latest report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 
(CDC) on April 16th, although the injury death rate among children has dropped 
nearly 30 percent over the last decade, injury remains the No. 1 cause of death 
for kids. The CDC also reports that in 2009, more than 9,000 children lost 
their lives as the result of unintentional injury in the United States. To help 
address the problem of child injury, CDC has partnered with more than 60 
stakeholders, including the Center for Injury Research and Prevention, to 
develop a National Action Plan for Child Injury Prevention (NAP). The NAP is 
designed to raise awareness about child injury and its effects on our nation, 
highlight prevention solutions by uniting stakeholders around a common set of 
goals and strategies, and mobilize a national, coordinated effort to reduce 
child injury."As a researcher and medical practitioner, I see firsthand how 
common child injuries are and the impact they have on children and their 
families," says Flaura Winston, MD, PhD, founder and scientific co-director of 
CIRP. "We are so pleased to be able to contribute to NAP and join with CDC and 
other organizations to help mobilize the injury prevention community. Although 
the drop in the pediatric injury death rate over the past decade shows great 
progress, there is still much work to be done."Click here to download the
