WELCOME to VCU Trauma Center's Injury and Violence Prevention Program (IVPP)
IVPP is a mix of hospital- and community-based injury and violence prevention programs that provide multidisciplinary, collaborative, and evidence-based resources for the Richmond area and throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Announcing The PTS Injury Prevention International Travel Scholarship:

The Injury Prevention Committee of the Panamerican Trauma Society (PTS) is pleased to announce in 2014 the availability of two travel award scholarships for the best research related to the field of injury prevention.

The scholarship is intended to support travel to the annual meeting of the Panamerican Trauma Society to allow the author(s) to present their work related to  injury prevention and/or violence control at  the XXVII Panamerican Trauma Congress  in November 11-14, 2014. Preference will be given to research describing interventional projects rather than simple descriptions of injury epidemiology.

For more information please visit, go to Annual Meeting 2014.
