Many traumatic injuries can be prevented. We are committed to educating the community about how to prevent injuries or minimize the seriousness of an injury when it does occur. We also educate patients about how to minimize the suffering and life-altering consequences of trauma.
We reach out through public health fairs and community events. Some of the programs we offer include:
- fall prevention for the elderly.
- bike/helmet safety for children.
- prehospital continuing education for Emergency Medical Technicians.
We also work with the AAA in their Teen Driver Safety program and with the Safe Kids® Berks County Inc. Burn House.
