Committee on Trauma, Hopkins Center Win Impact Awards

CDC's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control announced that the American College of Surgeons' Committee on Trauma and The Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy have won the 2007 Injury Prevention and Control Health Impact Award. This is the first year this award has been presented.

The Committee on Trauma (COT) was chosen for requiring trauma centers to screen patients for alcohol problems, which made the COT "the first health care organization to mandate provision of an evidence-based health promotion and disease prevention mental health benefit in hospitalized patients," according to the Oct. 9 announcement.

The Johns Hopkins center conducts research to reduce the incidence, severity, and consequences of injuries and is helping to educate future leaders in this field. CDC created the awards to recognize efforts to achieve a greater health impact in the field of injury prevention, promote best practices and success stories in the field, and demonstrate CDC's commitment to achieving health impact.
