The Injury Control Research Center (ICRC) program celebrated its 35th Anniversary with a webinar on October 6, 2022 featuring CDC’s Acting Principal Deputy Director Dr. Deb Houry along with current and former ICRC directors who discussed their thoughts on the past, present, and future of the program.
CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) funds ICRCs to study ways to prevent injuries and violence and to work with community partners to put research findings into action. Underlying all other ICRCs core functions is their ability to bring together multiple stakeholders from disparate disciplines, perspectives, and agencies to join forces and tackle critical public health problems. Through leadership that combines their injury topic and core areas of expertise—research, outreach, and training—they continue to advance the field of injury and violence prevention.
