The Pediatric Injury Prevention, Education and Research (PIPER) program is a new initiative, launched in 2011, that aims to reduce child and adolescent injury and its outcomes in Colorado and around the world through high quality research and effective practice. Our goals include:
- Research: Conduct high-quality research on child and adolescent injury and violence issues
- Community Programs: Conduct high quality injury and violence prevention activities
- Policy: Work to improve national, state, tribal, local and organizational policy to address injury and violence issues
- Workforce Development: Train and assist professionals in public health practice applied to injury and violence prevention
PIPER is a collaborative initiative of the Colorado School of Public Health, the University of Colorado School of Medicine, and Children’s Hospital Colorado.
