Think First


Think First Missouri is an award-winning prevention program presented by inspiring survivors of brain and spinal cord injuries. Through compelling first-hand testimonies, audiences learn about the consequences of injuries and how injuries can happen to anyone. The sobering yet motivational messages urge everyone to take personal responsibility and to make safe choices.

The Think First Trauma Offenders Program is a hospital-based experimental program designed to educate young high-risk drivers about the consequences of motor vehicle trauma. The goal of the program is to demonstrate the impact of unsafe driving and provide a graphic and realistic view of life as a crash survivor. During the program, court-ordered traffic offfenders follow the same path they would have taken had they been seriously injured in a crash, including a tour of the Frank L. Mitchell Jr., MD, Trauma Center where victims of severe automobile collisions are treated almost daily.
