Injury Free Coalition for Kids of Seattle (Injury Free-Seattle) was created in November 2002, with a focus on reducing childhood injury in central and south Seattle neighborhoods. Data has shown that children living in these communities are at an increased risk of injury compared to children living in other areas of the city. Injury Free-Seattle is a partnership between Harborview Medical Center, the region's only level 1 pediatric trauma center, Seattle Children's Hospital, a regional leader in child health and advocacy, and Public Health Seattle & King County, which maintains injury surveillance data and is committed to building and supporting healthy communities.
Our work to date has focused on communities in the Central Area and Southeast Seattle, two of the most ethnically and economically diverse regions in our city. We anticipate expanding our outreach citywide, while maintaining a focus on reaching low-income and immigrant families.
Our priority program areas for the next 5 years will focus on Physical Activity, Injury Free. Our goal is to bring injury prevention messages and resources into programs that promote physical activity for children and families. Specifically, these focus areas are:
