WEBINAR: Data Driven Strategies for Drowning Prevention

Our national partners at the National Center for Fatality Review and Prevention are hosting an upcoming webinar:

"Data Driven Strategies for Drowning Prevention"

Wednesday, April 12, 2017 from 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM MDT

Among unintentional injuries, drowning is a leading cause of death of children. Almost 800 children fatally drown each year between the ages of 0-17 in the United States. This webinar will highlight three settings in which many drownings occur – in and around the home; swimming pools; and open bodies of water. Age, gender, and race vary considerably according to each of these settings. Prevention strategies for each of these settings will be discussed. Fatality review data has been instrumental in shaping our understanding of fatal drownings.

Speakers include:
Diane Pilkey, RN, MPH
Senior Nurse Consultant at the Maternal and Child Health Bureau/Health Resources and Services Administration and the federal project officer for the National Center for Fatality Review and Prevention cooperative agreement

Angela Steel, MPHE
Injury Epidemiologist in the Research Department at Safe Kids Worldwide

Elizabeth ‘Tizzy’ Bennett, MPH
Director, Guest Services and Community Benefit at Seattle Children’s Hospital

Webinar will be recorded and posted with the slides on the NCFRP website:
