Injury Center Launches New Partnership with Diné College and Indian Health Service


The Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research & Policy is excited to announce a new Partnership with Diné College in Shiprock, NM and the Indian Health Service (IHS). This new initiative aims to increase the injury prevention workforce in tribal communities.

Center faculty will work with faculty at Diné College's Department of Public Health to infuse injury prevention content in their core courses by participating as guest lecturers and by identifying opportunities to incorporate examples of injury prevention into the public health curriculum. Additionally, Center and Diné College faculty will work together with IHS Navajo area environmental team to identify injury prevention practicum opportunities for Diné students. Diné students will be able to apply for stipends to support their practicum work. The inaugural cohort will include 6 students during the 23-24 academic year.
