SAVIR hosts dynamic meeting

Nearly 200 injury researchers met in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, this past March for SAVIR's Fifth Biennial National Conference. The theme of the conference was “Maximizing Injury Research to Benefit All”, which focused on how injury research can promote positive behaviours and policies with impact throughout the lifespan and across diverse populations. Since SAVIR's first national conference at the Columbus Children's Hospital in Ohio in 2007, SAVIR has worked to bring the injury science community together to develop injury prevention and control research, policy, practice and teaching. The 2015 conference featured a distinguished group of speakers, workshops highlighting contemporary methods in injury prevention and control, panels of journal editors and federal project officers offering guidance to students and early-stage investigators, and an awards luncheon to recognise the great accomplishments of researchers in the field.
