Thank you to all who participated in the 2020 EAST Community Outreach Program! The 2020 Program was held on Tuesday, January 14, 2020 at the William R. Boone High School in Orlando, Florida. Watch the video! Since 2012, EAST has hosted a Community Outreach Program in conjunction with its Annual Scientific Assembly, with members of the EAST Injury Control and Violence Prevention Committee (ICVP) coordinating the program and traveling into the community to deliver high-quality, high-profile injury prevention programs around public health topics such as distracted and impaired driving, vehicle safety, teen violence, and substance abuse.

The 2012-2016, 2019 and 2020 program has educated more than 3,000 high-school students about the dangers of distracted and impaired driving. In 2017 and 2018, EAST directed its outreach efforts toward training nearly 100 non-medical personnel on hemorrhage control in the wake of the gun violence epidemic. Watch the videos and see the positive impact of the EAST Community Outreach Program.
