“IPRCE is designed to advance the field of injury prevention through the development of new scientific research and/or surveillance methods, creation of new knowledge, translation of knowledge in practice, program and policy development and evaluation of activities that will ultimately reduce injuries and death,” says Jonathan Rupp, PhD, associate professor of emergency medicine, Emory University School of Medicine and principal investigator of IPRCE. “We are excited to receive this new funding from the CDC to help us better assist Georgians to mitigate and eliminate the impact of injury in our community.”
