  • The Injury Free Coalition for Kids - Atlanta site is a coalition of institutions and organizations dedicated to preventing childhood injuries. The coalition members include: Grady Health System and its affiliate hospitals and clinics, Fulton County Health Department, Departments of Pediatrics and Pediatric Surgery of Emory University School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics of Morehouse School of Medicine, Atlanta Public Schools, Atlanta Housing Authority Community, Allstate Foundation Southeast Regional Office, CDC - Center for Injury Prevention, and Atlanta Fire & Rescue.

    The program is funded by the Governors Office of Highway Safety. The program is based out of the Grady Health System (GHS). The Grady Health System is operated by the Fulton-DeKalb Hospital Authority for the care of the indigent patients of those two counties however our program's serve caregiver's throughout the State of Georgia. The population served by Grady Health System is largely minority (over 90% African-American) and indigent (approximately 75% insured by Medicaid). Approximately 60,000 emergency room visits are made to Hughes Spalding each year, as well as over 10,000 appointment visits to primary and sub-specialty clinics. Grady Memorial Hospital has the premier Level 1 trauma center in the region.

    The Injury Free Coalition for Kids-Atlanta’s primary objective is to reduce the number of injuries among our pediatric population. This objective is accomplished by the development and delivery of community and hospital based injury prevention programs, including:

    • Home Safety: Baby Safety Shower & Safety House Program
    • Car Seat Distribution and Instruction (Watch the video)
