EvergreenHealth is proud to lead Safe Kids Eastside, a local coalition dedicated to protecting children from unintentional injury - the #1 cause of death and disability for children ages 1-14 in this country.
The coalition strives to reach families with injury-prevention education and programs through partnerships with safety-focused organizations. Safe Kids Eastside draws from a global network of non-profit organizations.
Dr. Brad Younggren, medical director of Safe Kids Eastside, offered great home safety tips on KING5's New Day Northwest. View the tips
Sports safety is a shared responsibility. We presented two sports safety clinics for coaches, parents and the community in August 2013. The presentations from those clinics are available at this link.
The Safe Kids Eastside website (www.safekidseastside.org) is currently under construction and this is an interim information page. Please check back in a few weeks for updates on the status of our website and useful injury prevention information.
