CONNECTING SCIENCE TO PRACTICE

 

Mission

The Emory Center for Injury Control's mission is to build the field of injury prevention and reduce injuries in Georgia by facilitating collaborations, supporting innovative research, training practitioners and researchers, and strengthening the bridge between science and practice.

Vision

 The Emory Center for Injury Control is committed to reducing and preventing injuries and violence in Georgia, particularly among vulnerable populations. We support interdisciplinary and collaborative relationships with universities and community partners to facilitate, strengthen and transform injury prevention in Georgia. The ECIC will nurture and develop the next generation of injury prevention practitioners and researchers and also enhance the knowledge and skills of those currently in the field.  We will conduct applied research that informs practice through the implementation, dissemination, and diffusion of our findings.
