2016 Annual Meeting
The 2016 meeting of the Southeastern and Southwestern Injury Prevention Network took place in Louisville, Kentucky from May 11-13. It was held in conjunction with the Kentucky Governor’s Safety and Health Conference, giving us an opportunity to learn more about partners and projects within Kentucky.
Highlights of the meeting included presentations about the Kentucky Office of Drug Control Policy, Safe Communities, and the Office of Highway Safety. Our keynote speaker, Dr. Bharat Balasubramanian, presented to the network, as well as the larger conference. The topic of his presentation was Advanced Vehicle Technologies, or “self driving cars,” a topic that presented new information and ideas for preventing injuries.
