Injury Topics

Several injury mechanisms contribute disproportionately to the injury disparities in West Virginia and the surrounding region. An understanding of these mechanisms, along with national, local, and institutional priorities, has led the Center to emphasize several injury problems in our work. These areas of emphasis include motor vehicle injuries, prescription drug abuse, elderly falls, occupational injury, traumatic brain injury, suicide, and intimate partner violence. The linked pages provide very brief descriptions of the Center’s various activities within these areas of emphasis, and related publication lists.
