You Make The Call | Bike Helmet Safety

Every two minutes a child is treated in the emergency room for a bicycle-related injury. One of the best ways to protect your children is by making sure they wear a bike helmet every time they ride.

The Johns Hopkins Child Injury Prevention Network (CIPN) is committed to reducing the burden of injury — one child at a time. CIPN is a collaborative group of faculty and staff members from the Center for Injury Research & Policy at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Pediatric Emergency Department, Pediatric Trauma Center and Pediatric Burn Center at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center. 

We are dedicated to advancing research and its application to bring evidence-based services and programs to the patients and families of Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, the Harriet Lane Clinic and the Baltimore community. Through injury prevention services, including consultations, community outreach, referrals, resources and safety products, we educate families and providers on how to best reduce the risk of injury.

CIPN is designed to:

  • Identify opportunities for and undertake collaborative research projects to address key gaps in the science of injury prevention   
  • Unify and strengthen policy advocacy efforts at local, state and national levels
  • Use evidence-based practices to implement education programs focused on reducing childhood injury
  • Share information and activities in order to coordinate efforts, avoid duplication of efforts and harmonize messages and priorities

CIPN fully supports and adheres to the mission, vision and core values of Johns Hopkins Medicine, the Bloomberg School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins Children’s Center and the pediatric trauma and burn programs.
