PURPOSE

The Regional Injury Prevention Research Center (RIPRC) was established to provide a multidisciplinary program for the prevention and control of injuries, including catastrophic and long-term disabling injuries, with attention to the rural environment. The overall goal of this Center is to develop injury control programs, which will ultimately reduce mortality, morbidity, and disability from injury in rural and other areas using a comprehensive and integrated approach that incorporates research, education, and intervention efforts.


UNIQUENESS OF THE CENTER
The uniqueness of this Center is its focus on injuries, which are a major source of disability, life years lost and costs to the region and society, in general. This Center is one of few such designated centers in the country and is exceptional, not only because of the collaborative endeavors among multiple insti-tutions and agencies in several states and areas in the North Central American region but, also, because of the available expertise and relevant resources from many scientific disciplines. Nationally and internationally recognized, it will provide ongoing opportunities to students, researchers, and public health personnel and serve as a major resource to the region at large.
