Past selected projects included topics related to suicide, intimate partner violence, traffic laws and police violence, and child abuse. Other examples of projects include, but are not limited to work-related injuries, motor vehicle crashes, pedestrian injuries, fires and burns, falls, poisoning, drug overdose, sports and recreational injuries, etc. Visit the past news announcement to see examples of prior awardees and their projects.
