We are excited to welcome another member of The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia family to the blogosphere: the Center for Injury Research and Prevention has launched a new blog! Research in Action features news and commentary on the important work being done at the Center for Injury Research and Prevention every day, and will tackle such topics as teen driving, child safety seats, and concussions.

Though the blog was only launched a few weeks ago, the Research in Action team has been very active, publishing a number of posts by Center for Injury Research and Prevention investigators. For example, Flaura K. Winston, MD, PhD, scientific director and founder of the Center, wrote a post on the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration in injury prevention research. More recently, Patty Huang, MD, a developmental and behavioral pediatrician who moderates Research in Action, discussed developmental disabilities and teen driving.

The Center's Suzanne Hill, PhD, Nancy Kassam-Adams, PhD, and Mark Zonfrillo, MD, M.S.C.E., have also contributed posts to the blog. The blog is sure to be updated frequently, so don't forget to subscribe to Research in Action's feed.
