Abstract:
The Injury and Prevention Program, run jointly by East Carolina University's School of Medicine and Pitt County Memorial Hospital, seeks to reduce the region's number of emergency room cases. One project, the Pitt County Safe Communities Coalition, promotes bicycle safety. The coalition has sold or given away over 600 bicycle helmets, held bicycle safety schools for over 1,000 students, and seen laws passed in Ayden, Greenville, and Grifton requiring riders age 15 and under to wear helmets.
