Abstract

The Consortium for Injury Research and Community Action (CIRCA) is a university-wide comprehensive Injury Control Research program that provides community based injury prevention, research, training, and service through an extensive collaboration with a broad range of university, state and local organizations. The consortium conducts and promotes injury control research, gathers and disseminates information on injuries, provides training for health professionals, and informs public and community leaders on injury control issues. The unifying theme is a unique focus on social, public policy, environmental change and community participatory-based approaches to injury research and prevention.
