Programs


The Injury Free Coalition for Kids of Atlanta (Injury Free Atlanta) is housed in the Injury Prevention Program at Grady Health System's Grady Memorial Hospital, home to the region's premier Level I trauma center. 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. The primary objective of Injury Free Atlanta 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 Program
  • Car Seat Distribution and Instruction
