Community Education and Injury Prevention
In addition to helping save lives, HonorHealth's Level I Trauma Centers fulfill their community health mission in two important ways:
- They collect and track data of all trauma-related injuries from surrounding communities and rural communities that we serve. This helps health officials throughout Arizona monitor community trauma care needs.
- They provide community education programs. Staff frequently visits high schools, grade schools, churches and community centers to promote safety awareness and injury prevention. A primary focus is educating the young about the consequences of unsafe driving practices.
Other areas addressed are motorcycle safety, teen alcohol awareness and the importance of wearing seatbelts.
