Injury Prevention

The best way to treat a traumatic injury is to prevent it from ever happening. That’s why University of Missouri Health Care researchers collaborate with experts across the state to uncover ways people can lower their risk of injuries. As part of an academic medical center, we take a scientific approach to targeting areas for improvement, and testing tactics in our community in order to reach our goal of dramatically improving  injury rates.
