Traumatic Brain Injury hope and information concerning neuroplasticity:
Did you know that American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) have the highest motor vehicle-related death rates of all racial and ethnic groups, with rates two to three times greater than all other Americans?
CDC in partnership with the Indian Health Service (IHS) developed the Roadway to Safer Tribal Communities Toolkit to provide materials including fact sheets, posters and a video to help prevent crash-related injuries and deaths among members of tribal nations. These materials focus on important steps for road safety including:
- increasing proper child safety seat use;
- increasing seat belt use; and
- decreasing alcohol-impaired driving.
Check out the video “A Killer in Indian Country
” to hear personal stories and learn more about major risks and effective strategies to help prevent injuries and deaths among American Indians and Alaska Natives.
