Community education and injury prevention

In addition to saving lives, HonorHealth’s Level 1 trauma centers fulfill their community health mission by monitoring trauma-related injuries and providing community education programs across the state.

Community education programs

Our highly trained trauma teams frequently visit schools, churches and community centers to present topics on fall prevention, stop the bleed education and safe driving.

Safe driver education

They provide education and classes for teens and older adults on road safety, including safe driving practices, motorcycle safety and teen alcohol awareness.

A Matter of Balance classes 

A Matter of Balance is an award-winning, evidence-based program designed to manage falls and increase activity levels in older adults to prevent falls from happening. These free, two-hour classes are held twice a week for four weeks.

Topics include:

  • Setting goals for increased activity
  • Making changes to reduce fall risks at home 
  • Exercises to increase strength and balance

The No. 1 cause of preventable death after an injury is bleeding. In this class, you will learn how to use bleeding control methods to help save a life.
