Safety Initiatives

The safety initiatives at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh cover injury prevention across the developmental life span, from birth to the teen years, in a variety of programs. By providing education, resources, and support we are able to ensure that children are safer in the greater Pittsburgh area and surrounding region.
