Unintentional injury is the leading cause of death and disability for American children. Because most childhood injuries can be prevented, the Rainbow Injury Prevention Center at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital is dedicated to reducing injury risk by working directly with children and families, sharing creative ideas and resources with partners in the community, and advancing the body of knowledge in unintentional injury prevention research.
The Rainbow Injury Prevention Center works with children and families inside and outside of the hospital to help kids of all ages learn and practice safe habits and aid parents in protecting children from the most common risks to child health and wellbeing.
