Those of us here at Cornerstone are excited to welcome another member of the CHOP family to the blogosphere: the Center for Injury Research and Prevention has launched a new blog! Research in Action will feature news and commentary on the important work being done at the Center for Injury Research and Prevention every day, and will tackle such topics as teen driving, child safety seats, and concussions.
Though it was only launched recently, the Research in Action team has been very active, publishing a number of posts by Center for Injury Research and Prevention investigators. Flaura K. Winston, MD, PhD, scientific director and founder of the Center, wrote a post on the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration in injury prevention research. More recently, Mark Zonfrillo, MD, MSCE, reported on a Pediatrics study of physical disability in children who have suffered traumatic injuries.
The Center’s Suzanne Hill and Nancy Kassam-Adams, PhD, have also contributed posts to the blog, while Patty Huang, MD, a developmental and behavioral pediatrician, will be moderating Research in Action.
The blog is sure to be updated frequently, so don’t forget to subscribe to Research in Action’s feed!
