Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy
From opioid overdoses and campus sexual violence to fatalities on our roadways, injuries, like disease, can be prevented. The Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy finds evidence-based ways to keep people safer and translates that evidence into policy and practice. We’re a collaborative of injury prevention experts, and we invite you to tap into our expertise and get involved in our mission.
