CIPT Has a New Home!

We moved into our new offices at Wake Forest Biotech Place in downtown Winston-Salem in Feb. We celebrated our grand opening after our semiannual Advisory Board meeting in March with food, drinks and tours of the facility.

The building now known as Wake Forest Biotech Place was built in 1937 by R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, and is 242,000 sq. ft. with 65,869 glass blocks composing the fašade. 

 

We share the same building as one of our research partners - the Virginia Tech-Wake Forest University School of Biomedical Engineering and Sciences.

 

CIPT Areas of Focus

Violence Intervention Screening and Initial Treatment

Laura Veach, Associate Professor


Violence-related injuries result in approximately 1,800 youths per day receiving medical care in our nation's hospitals. Dr. Veach's team has developed a model for violence intervention with hospitalized trauma patients aged 15-20.
