Motor vehicle safety involves all modes of transportation. By creating safe biking and pedestrian environments, we create safer roads for all users. This track will highlight safety measures taken by communities to improve safety, innovative and emerging strategies, evidence-based practices, community engagement and lessons learned in bike and pedestrian safety.

Child Passenger Safety continues to be a challenge for tribal communities. This track will focus on CEU opportunities for existing Child Passenger Safety Technicians to earn CEU’s and seat sign offs toward their recertification. Presentations will focus on new technology in the field, challenges in the field, caregiver communication, and the new changes to the SafeKids technician course. We are interested in topics across the field that directly impact Indian Country.

Data Development

This track will focus on demonstrating the impact of injury prevention programs in Indian Country, data collection, data storage and analysis. We are specifically interested in abstracts which describe formative and process evaluations of programs; innovative way to use, collect, and store data; and examples of how to measure program outcomes with existing data or data collected through culturally-tailored ways. Presentations informed by quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods are welcome. We are interested in presentations from across topic areas.
