Mission and Vision


IPRCE-supported research, education, outreach, along with the practitioner communities that we build and support will generate transformative changes that reduce the burden of injury in Georgia and the Southeast United States.  

Mission Statement

IPRCE brings together multidisciplinary stakeholders from diverse backgrounds to advance injury, violence, and overdose prevention in Georgia and the Southeast region. We support and conduct research that translates to effective injury prevention strategies and improvements in health outcomes.

We provide educational opportunities for researchers, practitioners, and students to improve their access to the latest evidence-based practices and cutting-edge research.

We perform outreach that amplifies the injury communications of our members and partners and ensures that the results of our research are accessible to those that benefit from it.

We've completed a year-long strategic planning process and compiled this report of the process and the outcomes, including themes, goals, and short, mid, and long-term initiatives.
