As the school year ends, it is a time when our injury and violence prevention focus shifts to ensure children have a safe and healthy summer. Recent CSN topics of focus include heatstroke
, and fire and burn
In addition to these important child safety areas, and with children spending more time at home during the summer months, we want to call attention to firearm safety.
Looking ahead, CSN is excited to announce that applications are now open for the third cohort of the Child Safety Learning Collaborative! The third cohort will begin in November 2021 and continue for 18 months to April 2023. Learn more below on how to apply to this national initiative to reduce fatal and serious injuries among infants, children, and adolescents.
Throughout this newsletter, you will find resources from our Children's Safety Now Alliance partners highlighted in purple.
