How We Help
The mission of the Lee County Injury Prevention Coalition is to prevent injury, disability and death among people of all ages through advocacy, education, legislation and partnerships. The collation works to secure the resources needed carry out the organization’s mission and to establish priorities based on relevant, scientific evidence related to injury prevention.
As a partnership of more than 80 public and private agencies, the Lee County Injury Prevention Coalition takes a leadership role in building awareness about important community concerns, from preventing falls in seniors and the dangers of prescription drug abuse to information about hurricane preparation, child safety, bicycle safety, CPR classes, domestic violence and much more.
Through free community events, classes, health fairs, public policy initiatives and media campaigns, the Lee County Injury Prevention Coalition is dedicated to delivering injury prevention messages and solutions that help create a safer community for everyone.
