Preventing Injuries in Indiana: Injury Prevention Resource Guide App

The Preventing Injuries in Indiana: Injury Prevention Resource Guide* is available for Android and IOS (Apple) systems.  The app features buttons for 10 common sources of injury, such as distracted driving, sexual assault, prescription overdoses and falls among older adults. Each category includes a description of the scope of the problem in Indiana and the United States, discusses how the problem is being addressed and includes links to resources.

Users can search for specific items and download pdf versions of material included in the app, or they can share data from the app through email and social media. The app includes an email address for the health department’s Division of Trauma and Injury Prevention, which will be updating and expanding the app in the coming months.
